The only North American crayfish that does cheer you up: this stop-motion copy of fabric. The exotic little animal is a huge plague in our ditches – the Dutch legislation being in a quagmire.
Spotted for the first time on Dutch soil in 1985, by now present in our country in their billions: the American crayfish. A serious plague with far-reaching consequences for other flora and fauna, and eventually also for the safety of our dykes. This documentary in stop-motion animation about this exotic species not only broaches the problem, but also the contradictory and thereby ineffective legislation at play here.
