Biosecurity

Biosecurity is key to protecting the Dee Catchment from the threat of Invasive Non-Native Species.

Everyone visiting a water body is responsible for helping to avoid the spread of non-native species on their clothes, equipment and everything else that comes into contact with water. INNS could be spread in any water or material moved onto or away from a location and so if you are visiting a water body there is a real risk you could spread harmful organisms unless you follow good biosecurity practice.

What is biosecurity?

Biosecurity means taking steps to make sure that good practices are in places to reduce and minimise the risk of spreading INNS. A good biosecurity routine is essential to prevent the spread of INNS, pests and diseases even if they are not apparent on site.
