Killer shrimp danger on Island

Wed, 15 Sep 2010

Manx anglers who have visited the South East of England recently are being urged to wash down all of there fishing gear before using it at home.

A killer shrimp has been spotted in a reservoir in Cambridgeshire that has the potential to destroy native wildlife and reduce bio diversity in Manx rivers, should it be brought across.

A government spokesman said: "The island would be vulnerable to the invader as its preferred habitat is rocky with fast flowing water".
