You could always try the environment agency as this is much more thier field than ours. It may also be worth checking on the law in that area. I am not sure but I believe you may need a license. If you go to the page for membership there is a link to the E A site.
Best of luck David.

Matt,

I believe the basingstoke canal authorities allows people to remove crayfish from the canal as they also have a major problem on some streches. If you are looking to purchase a trap, I saw one hanging up in the Raison Bros tackle shop the last time i was there. Not sure what they were charging though.

I have spoken to the EA 01276 454538 and the answer is that you do need to write and get permision to trap cray fish. The granting will not be a problem but they may require a record of what you take. Talk to dominic Martyn or John Sutton.
Best of luck.
