Potential Invasive Alien Species Sales Become Illegal

Potential I.A.S Sales Illegal From 3rd August 2017

From 3 August 2017 it will be illegal to sell some aquatic plants which are seen as invasive alien species.  Follow the link below to the Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association website to see which species are covered. There are also some animals viewed as I.A.S which should not be sold and are also covered here. If you see these for sale you should tell the retailer that they should be withdrawn from sale.  If the retailer is a member of OATA you can also take up the matter with them.  .  Check the links to find further information.
