Our rivers, streams, lakes and ponds are under increasing pressure from invasive non-native species. Using AquaInvaders you will be able to help the Environment Agency, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency discover just what the extent of the problem is. Your data will also contribute towards developing a coordinated strategy to deal with the most pressing issues. AquaInvaders works alongside PlantTracker and is designed to collect information on invasive non-native animals. It covers fish (12 species altogether), crayfish (5 species), amphibians (4 species), Killer Shrimp, Zebra Mussel, Mink and many other unwelcome animal species that pose a threat to native biodiversity and/or threaten the integrity of our water ways. The app is supported by the GB Non-Native Species Secretariat, the Angling Trust, the Rivers and Fisheries Trusts of Scotland and BSAC. The data you collect will be submitted to the Biological Records Centre (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology) where it will be verified by experts and, in certain cases, responded to directly by the relevant authority. Once verified your data will be available publicly via the NBN Gateway.
