North American crayfishes, the purposes of this article are to (1) reassess the conserva- tion status and threats to native crayfishes in the United States and Canada using the best information available, (2) provide updated state/provincial distributions, (3) update the list of references on the biology, conservation, and distribution of File Size: KB.

Inthe International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), led by scientists with the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), undertook an effort to change that. They assembled a group of 76 experts to apply the IUCN Red List criteria to the conservation assessment of all of the world's freshwater crayfish.

The American Fisheries Society (AFS) Endangered Species Committee herein provides a list of all crayfishes (families and Cambaridae) in the United States and Canada that includes state provincial distributions; a comprehensive review of the conservation status of all taxa; and references on biology, conservation, and distribution of by: Freshwater Crayfish: A Global Overview - CRC Press Book and the US, this book invites contributions from experts around the globe, covering the conservation status and biology of all endangered species, taxonomy, and distribution of crayfishes worldwide.

The completion of the new world crayfish list allows for further refinements to the conservation status of the animals too. Current Red List assessments show that 32 per cent of crayfish are already thought to be threatened with extinction, a similar number to freshwater shrimps and crabs.

Crayfish, moderately sized freshwater Crustacean of order Decapoda, similar in appearance to the American term is also applied occasionally to marine spiny lobsters, although there have been attempts to discourage this usage.

The rusty crayfish (Faxonius rusticus) is a large, aggressive species of freshwater crayfish which is native to the United States. Its range is rapidly expanding across the continent, displacing native crayfishes in the process: it is known to have reached New England, Ontario, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Ohio, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Class: Malacostraca.
