The non-native species is the most common and is the one which causes the biggest problem - the signal crayfish . The signal crayfish was introduced in North America in the 1970s and sold to farmers who are seeking to diversify into new markets . These crayfish escapements of these farms are established in our lakes and rivers .
In addition, many new populations have been put in place because of the translocations . Under the Wildlife Act and the campaign, it is illegal to introduce non-native species without the authorization of the government.
