A species of shrimp related to the so-called 'Killer Shrimp' has been found on the River Severn near Worcester and on two canals in Worcestershire. The 'Killer Shrimp' is known to kill a range of native species, including young fish, and can significantly alter ecosystems.
The Environment Agency and Canal and River Trust are advising all waterways users to follow the Check, Clean, Dry routine - looking for the shrimp on equipment, washing it and drying it before moving to a new location.
