This full day course provides an introduction to crayfish ecology and identification. We will look at the known distribution in Essex and the ecology of native and non-native crayfish species. By the end of the day participants will be able to distinguish the three species found in Essex – our native White-clawed Crayfish and the invasive Signal Crayfish and Turkish Crayfish.

This course also coveres biosecurity around waterways - participants will also be acutely aware of the risks of transferring Crayfish Plague from river to river and of measures to prevent its spread (drying/sterilising equipment, boots, nets etc.).
