It is the first time this relative of the 'Killer Shrimp' has been found in the UK. David Throup, Environment Manager for the Environment Agency said:
“We are concerned that this invasive species has been found in the Midlands. We now have a dedicated team whose focus is to establish the degree of the problem, and whether the shrimp has spread wider than the locations already found. We are treating this as a priority so that we can come up with a plan to help contain it’s spread as far as possible.”
