    I've heard there are Signal crayfish in the Tees not sure which areas. As far as I'm aware you have to apply for a license/permission to trap them

    Thanks mate,I meant thornaby area..I don't think you'd need a licence tho as there a pest to our native species.however if the authorities can make money from them they will.

    You need permission from the EA mate.
    They are very strict on the design of the traps so that they don't endanger native wildlife.

    Not ones caught by my own hand no- but they are very tasty.
    I think you would need to 'purge' them in clean water for a few days first though.

    skinningrove becks


    Are they as far up as the "v dam" & ces shaws? or has the culvert prevented them

    from getting up stream to the white bridge & sandy beach ? also .
