Recreational boating is a fun and exciting pastime, BUT, did you know many small critters may be hitching a ride on your boat to a new lake or river? Organisms like zebra mussels, spiny waterflea or even plants like Eurasian watermilfoil may tag along for the ride as you travel from lake to lake. Zebra mussels attach to any hard surface and may be attached to your boat, motor or trailer. Microscopic invasive species like the spiny water flea can be transferred in surface water moved by your boat through the bilge, motor, live well, and transom wells. -- UNLESS YOU STOP THEM – How can you help?
