    Default Stop the spread of invasive species

    Hi

    University of Hull are collecting data on invasive species and want us all to participate. Strangely they've left Gyrodactylus out and, even stranger, no Snakehead! Also, no Japanese Knotweed, but a host of other things you might be familiar with, including the grey squirrel.

    Talk about closing the stable door after the horse has bolted! They even have the cheek to try and blame anglers for their spread, when it was anglers all along who were the voice crying in the wilderness that they should not be allowed into the country in the first place!!! It was these folk who brought the damn things here and spread them around the country.

    Indeed. Useful reading all the same. I had no idea there is a parthenogenetic crayfish. Flummoxed as to how rhododendron is on the list above knotweed. And muntjac? Surely they meant mink!
