Stop aquatic hitchhikers. Prevent the transport of nuisance species. Clean all recreational equipment before moving to a different area.

When you leave a body of water:

  • Remove any visible mud, plants, animals, before transporting equipment.
  • Eliminate water from equipment before moving to another site.
  • Clean and dry anything that comes into contact with with water (boats, trailers, fishing gear, clothing, dogs, etc).
  • Never release plants, fish or animals into a body of water unless they came out of that body of water.

Many of our worst aquatic weeds are spread by plant fragments, fragments caught in boat propellers and trailers.
