Put Muntjac deer and crayfish on the menu, peer says as he urges people to eat invasive species ‘guilt free’

Put Muntjac deer and crayfish on the menu, peer says as he urges people to eat invasive species 'guilt free'

“They taste delicious, they are the most sought-after of all the venison species, though there’s not very much meat on them – they’re tiny. They’re also quite a challenging quarry as they’re so small. We need to encourage as many people as possible to hunt them as they have such a disastrous effect on biodiversity.”
He added that the Canada Goose is another example of an invasive species causing nuisance – but it is not legal to sell their meat. Shooters who kill the geese, however, have been known to enjoy them in casseroles and stews.
Restaurants in London are catching on to the trend. Ivan Tisdall-Downes, who runs Native in Borough, has flooded his menu with invasive species.
These include the signal crayfish, pennywort, pineapple weed, grey squirrel, Muntjac deer, Wild Fal oysters, Darwin’s barberry and the Alexander plant.
