This week is Invasive Species Week, which will bring people together to raise awareness about invasive non-native species. This picture is of Ben, a fisheries officer who, in this picture, has just cleared several tons of pennywort, an invasive species which destroys biodiversity and spreads, blocking out light for other aquatic species.

Our responsibility as #travelers is huge. Know how to #checkcleandry & why the invasive "rock snot" algae is ruining New ZealandItToday was a CRAY DAY!! I absolutely love crayfish, specifically our  only native species, the White-clawed Crayfish Austropotamobius pallipes pictured here.

This species of crayfish has a highly fragmented distribution across the UK. It is present in England, eastern Wales and Ireland.

The species is under serious threat from declining water quality, habitat loss due to river modifications and the introduction of non-native invasive crayfish species which outcompete it.

The most common crayfish invasive is the American Signal Crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus, which is also a carrier of the deadly Crayfish Plague Aphanomyces astaci. This is a water mould infects the soft tissue of native species and can wipe out populations in just weeks. The water mould can survive on damp clothing and equipment for up to 22days.

It is therefore extremely important when working in, or near, water to ensure all equipment and clothing is thoroughly cleaned. This is known as biosecurity and helps stop the spread of non-native species and infectious diseases which harm UK biodiversity. 
Signal crayfish are not present in Ireland and they have super happy and healthy populations over there. However, this is not a reason to be passive regarding biosecurity, it makes it even more important!

For additional information on what biosecurity is and its importance in conservation, please check out the Environment AgencyRock snot, Didymosphenia hullii, may sound gross, but did you know that this species is new to science and has only been found in sections of the Farmington River? Check out this recent article on the subject from NPR (link provided below). Photo: Painted Turtle On The Farmington River

Awesome Work Adam - Always great to see #Biosecurity in Action #CheckCleanDry #StopTheSpread
Karen Harper, manager of the London Invasive Species Initiative, said: “You can help stop the spread of invasive non-native species like quagga mussel by following good biosecurity and applying check, clean, dry every time you are out on our waterways.
