How to Stop the Spread of Nuisance Species
To prevent invasive species from spreading to New Mexico:
- Inspect your vessel and trailer. Remove any mud, plants, fish, or other debris you see before leaving the area.
- Drain all water from your boat and equipment before leaving the area.
- Rinse and air-dry everything that came in contact with water, including boats, propellers, trailers, live wells, bait buckets, equipment, clothing, waders, dogs, etc.
- Never release plants, live bait, fish, or other animals from one body of water into another.
