River Nairn Crayfish problem to hit the small screen

The BBC Landward team were in town this week filming and interviewing for a programme that should be going out next Friday 3rd June.

The Gurn understands that they were at SNH Edinburgh on Monday, filming there about the crayfish (The North American signal crayfish, Pacifastacus leniusculus to be exact - picture here) then came up to Nairn later in the day. Tuesday morning at 9 they filmed Sandy Robb the River Nairn Water Bailiff then at 10 they filmed the Angling Association doing the traps and then asked a lot of questions. It was Sarah Mack who did the interview.
The anglers who were filmed were Willie Barron (president) Billy Milne (vice president) and Charlie Black (committee member).

Can anybody help to eradicate this species from the Nairn?
