'Killer' Shrimps Are Public Enemy Number 1

'Killer' Shrimps Are Public Enemy Number 1

Killer Shrimp Dikerogammarus villosus has been named the worst alien invader by the Environment agency. The pest heads a list that includes american signal crayfish, topmouth gudgeon & mink. Though only 30 mm long it's voracious appetite means it poses a real threat to our native shrimp & to young fish. Invasive species cost the UK about £1.7bn a year.


American signal crayfish is very tasty probably the best way to get rid of it

Fried in garlic butter or cold with a nice hollandaise sauce :P
