Abstract

A new non-destructive method of sampling burrowing crayfish, the burrowing crayfish net, was compared to the Norrocky burrowing crayfish trap. The new sampling method captured significantly more crayfish than did the trap. Captured crayfish sizes were similar and sex ratios were not biased in the two methods. Sixteen species of crayfish have been captured with the burrowing crayfish net.
