Aquatic Invertebrates - invasive

Ringed Crayfish (Orconectes neglectus) on May 16, 2022

Submitter does not have a specimen

Description of specimen

On May 28, 2021, I opened up the drain valve on the TID feed line that delivers TID water to our property. The crayfish popped out. I caught it, took pictures, and later destroyed it after some research led me to suspect it was invasive (and, thus, illegal to release).
