If you can't beat them, eat them.......apparently. Not sure this is actually a good idea.



  1. Yes exactly what I was thinking...are they linking the downturn in local hotel and tourism business to the presence of crayfish in the Loch???
    Don't know if they realise the reason they probably got there in the first place...

  2. Yeah, the number of crayfish has had a big impact on fishing in the loch and a lot of people go there to do just that - unfortunately there is a lot of pressure to do something about it and I think they have run out of ideas.
