Killer Shrimp

Killer Shrimp, Scientists are concerned about a “murderer” villosus Dikerogammarus shrimp has been found in the waters off the coast of the United Kingdom. Small crustaceans are not a direct danger to humans, but are invasive and pose a serious problem for freshwater ecosystems in the UK.

The shrimp is eaten a number of freshwater invertebrates including shrimp others, damselflies, small fish that are common in the United Kingdom. “You tend to aggressively pursue their prey, often leaving dead, but not consumed. Is known to have caused the extinction of other species in other areas, according to The Epoch Times.

Scientists are devastated by the discovery. What exactly this means for the coastal fisheries is unknown, but it looks bad. How do I stop this murderer shrimp species without harming the wild fish and their human counterparts is the problem in question?

The murderer shrimp are not native to the area and do not know how they got there. Sounds like the plot of a bad science fiction movie, but is very real.
