Boat Inspection and Decontamination for Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention

Check out a new report on boat inspection and decontamination as a tool for preventing the spread of harmful aquatic invasive species. This first-time analysis for the Adirondack region:

  • summarizes the best available science
  • analyzes current AIS distribution and boater use patterns, and
  • recommends initial locations to consider integrating boat inspection and decontamination to prevent landscape level spread of AIS

A link to the report can be found here.
