Now is the perfect time to get cray-watching!

Hey Everyone, thanks for your interest in CRAYWATCH! Although crayfish are known as the 'charismatic megafauna' of a small stream ecosystem, very few people are aware of the incredibly aggressive nature of some invasive species. Most native crayfish populations on the European continent have been wiped out due to invasive crayfish who out-compete them for food and shelter. CRAYWATCH will provide us with an opportunity to monitor and prevent the spread of potentially invasive species (especially the asexually reproducing Marmokrebs).

Happy searching everyone, and thanks so much for your help with this project!
