Re: Blue Lobster (crayfish) #8
Its illeagal to keep any crayfish other than the native british and one other variety that wont breed in this country due to the high water temp it needs to breed. This is because the british native cray has been made extinct in many waterways due to the importation and subsiquent release/escape of the american signal cray that has decimated stocks of the british cray.
