Help stop the spread of invasive plants and animals in British waters.
Invasive non-native species can have a damaging impact on British plants, animals and ecosystems - by spreading disease, competing for habitat and food and direct predation.
Plants that grow profusely can block waterways while some animals can damage riverbanks - so they also affect economic uses of our environment and add significant management costs.
As a water user, you may unknowingly be helping to spread invasive species from one water body to another in equipment, shoes and clothing.
Help stop this happening by following three simple steps: Check, Clean, Dry.
Fish Legal (previously known as the Anglers’ Conservation Association, founded in 1948) was set up to protect all inland and coastal waters in the United Kingdom from pollution and other environmental damage. Fish Legal builds on over 70 years of experience in using the law to fight polluters. Its reputation was established in the landmark legal case, taken in its previous capacity as the Anglers’ Conservation Association (ACA), commonly known by the name of the angling club: the ‘Pride of Derby’.
"Drew Jaimieson has been a long term friend of United Clyde and frequently wrote enthusiastically about the Clyde in his weekly columns in the Scotsman during the 1980s. He has recently been persuaded to publish some of his writings in three paperbacks which are now available from Amazon at a price of £10 each. The Clyde gets a mention in each of them. They are a very pleasant read being extremely well written which is exactly what I expected from this gentleman and fellow angler."
