The EU Commission has passed legislation banning the importation and captive breeding of all Apple Snails. This applies to all countries of the European Union. More info in the linked article.

This unfortunate development is due to the presence of this snail in natural waterways. It is assumed this occurred due to negligence on the part of aquarists who allowed these invertebrates to get into the natural habitat. Another reason never to "flush" or discard aquarium residents that are still alive.
