Killer shrimp

Home / Killer shrimp

Whilst surveying the Churnet at Lords Bridge a killer Shrimp was captured. This is an alien invasive species which can do considerable harm to the invertibrates within the water way. Members need to ensure that all waders, boots and nets etc are cleaned and disinfected after visiting the river and before visiting any other of our waters so as there is no cross infection and to reduce the chances of introduction of this shrimp to other rivers.
