Inland Fisheries Ireland has created an exciting new smart phone app that is now available for free download from the Google Play and iTunes App stores.
The easy to use and readily accessible ‘IFI – Invasive Species’ app will aid users in the identification of invasive species and permit them to take georeferenced photographs that will immediately be uploaded to the IFI server. The information so received will be reviewed, uploaded onto the IFI species database and, if the sighting is of something new or particularly worrying, will trigger an immediate rapid response and on-site survey by IFI staff.
IFI are hoping that as many people as possible will use this app and help them in its ongoing battle against Aquatic Invasive Species. For more details visit http://www.fisheriesireland.ie/Invasive-Species/invasive-species.html or go to the Google Play or iTunes store to get the app.
