seem to remember something on the television once, not tonights countryfile, that you have to hold a licence to remove them from the rivers. cant help you on location tho.

you need a license from the enviroment agency but they are quite easy to get aparently, im going to be ringing them tomorrow for a pack as i have just got my trap Cool

A bloke who used to work with me used to catch them somewhere up near North Molton. I'll try and find out more details.

Noth Molton, That wold be great. Please let me know if you can find out where!

I think you need a licence only if you leave traps. Reason being they are worried that some types of traps kill w voles and otters or that you could take native crayfish.

is this correct?

Anyone know of a link for the environment agency or regs for signal crayfish? Thanks Ted
