Stop the Spread of Nuisance Species
To prevent spreading aquatic nuisance species:
- Inspect your vessel, motor, live wells, and trailer, and remove any aquatic nuisance species you see before leaving the area.
- Drain water from your boat, motor, bilge, live wells, and bait containers before leaving the area.
- Dispose of unwanted bait and other animals or aquatic plants in the trash.
- To remove or kill species that were not visible when leaving the area, either wash your boat and equipment with hot water or air dry them for at least five days.
