With Boating and Fishing Season Coming, Remember To Help Prevent the Spread of Aquatic Invasive Species
Boating and fishing season will be in full swing before we know it. While it's a great deal of fun, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources wants to remind us that preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species is everyone's personal responsibility.
According to the DNR, people are doing a much better job following Minnesota’s aquatic invasive species laws as the vast majority of lakes aren't infested. They key is to stay diligent by remembering to:
- Clean aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species from watercraft.
- Drain lake or river water from all equipment and keep drain plugs out during transport.
- Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash, not in the water.
Also, lake property owners are reminded that docks and lifts must be allowed to dry for at least 21 days and clean before moving them to another body of water.
