Boats, trailers, waders and other fishing and boating equipment can spread aquatic invasive species from waterbody to waterbody unless properly cleaned, dried or disinfected after use. Although some invasive species such as water milfoil are readily visible to the human eye, many others are too small to be readily noticed.

To avoid spreading invasive species please follow the guidelines in the following steps:

  1. Check
  2. Clean
  3. Drain
  4. Dry
  5. Disinfect
