No more Sunday morning excursions up to the Geddes Burn for the anglers. Ten years ago they decided to do something about the invasive North American Crayfish that have been colonising the Geddes Burn this side of the millennium. They have been doing their best to keep numbers down since then having caught over 3,500 of these devasting creatures in that time.
Their work has been invaluable in obtaining data on the Crayfish, they have kept meticulous records on each week's catch and the sex and size etc of the Crayfish which will aid research into finding a means of coming to a more permanent solution to the problem. The Gurn understands that comprehensive research involving an Aberdeen University Phd student is continuing into the problem in the Geddes Burn.
