Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers! Boats and anglers can significantly contribute to the spread of invasive species in Michigan’s waterways. Every time you launch into or leave a body of water, please do the following to prevent their spread:

  • Clean boats, trailers, and equipment and remove all mud, debris, and aquatic plant material
  • Drain water from watercraft, including live wells, bilges, and ballast tanks
  • Dry watercraft and equipment thoroughly
  • Dispose of bait in the trash–please do not release bait into the water!
