The White-clawed crayfish Austropotamobius pallipes is Britain’s only native freshwater crayfish. Crayfish eat invertebrates, carrion, water plants and dead organic matter. They inhabit small freshwater streams of a depth less than one metre, hiding underneath stones and rocks and in small crevices where they forage for food. It is in decline due to the introduction of the non-native North American signal crayfish. This invasive species has brought disease to our indigenous white-clawed crayfish, which has no natural resistance.
