Summer is coming! Warmer temperatures and fishing opener mean aquatic invasive species and MN boaters are ramping up activity on Minnesota lakes and rivers.
Do your part to prevent the spread of invasive plants and animals by cleaning, draining, and drying all recreational equipment that goes into a Minnesota lake or stream.
To help protect our lakes and rivers:
- Clean and drain boats and equipment before leaving the water access.
- Dispose of all unwanted bait, worms, and fish parts in the trash.
- Learn to recognize aquatic invasive species (AIS).
- Follow Minnesota's AIS laws and regulations.
