New Boating Information:

Dear Boater,
Aquatic invasive species (AIS) are threatening
Minnesota waters. These nonnative species harm
fish populations, water quality, and water recreation.
You can help prevent the introduction and spread of
invasive species by following both the required and
recommended actions listed on this card.
REQUIRED ACTIONS: You must…
CLEAN all visible aquatic plants, zebra mussels,
and other prohibited invasive species from
watercraft, trailers, and water-related equipment
before leaving any water access or shoreland.
DRAIN water-related equipment (boat,
ballast tanks, portable bait container, motor) and
drain bilge, livewell, and baitwell by removing
drain plugs before leaving a water access or
shoreland property. Keep drain plugs out and
water‑draining devices open while transporting
watercraft.
DISPOSE of unwanted bait, including minnows,
leeches, and worms, in the trash. It is illegal to
release live bait into a waterbody or release aquatic
animals from one waterbody to another. If you
want to keep your live bait, you must refill the bait
container with bottled or tap water.
Violating these regulations may result in fines up
to $1,000. To report a violation, contact a DNR
Conservation Officer. You can locate officers at
mndnr.gov/officerpatrolareas or by using the QR
code below.

ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS
Spray, rinse, dry — Some invasive species are
small and difficult to see at the access. To remove
or kill them, take one or more of the following
precautions before moving to another waterbody,
especially after leaving zebra mussel and spiny
waterflea infested waters:
• Spray with high-pressure water
• Rinse with very hot water*
• Dry for at least 5 days
• Run motor and personal watercraft for a
few seconds to discharge water before leaving
a water access.
• Transport fish on ice — be prepared, bring
a cooler.
* These water temperatures will kill zebra mussels and
some other AIS: 120°F for at least 2 minutes; or 140°F for
at least 10 seconds.
KNOW THE LAW: You may not…
Transport watercraft without drain plug
removed.
Arrive at lake access with drain plug in place.
Transport aquatic plants, zebra mussels, or
other prohibited species whether dead or alive.
Launch a watercraft with prohibited species
attached.
Transport water from Minnesota lakes or rivers.
Release live bait into the water.
Check these places on your boat and trailer
for aquatic plants or animals:
