Didymo, whirling disease, and New Zealand Mud Snails are just a few of the invasive species that fisherman help spread without taking proper precautions. This very informative site graphically illustrates the threats these aquatic hitchhikers pose to our waters and how we can help prevent their spread.
Welcome to a site for recreational users who want to help stop aquatic nuisance species. As Americans, we love to spend time on the water. Protecting these resources is an important part of our overall enjoyment. A concern we must all address is the spreading of harmful plants, animals and other organisms. These aquatic nuisance species can hitch a ride on our clothing, boats, and items used in the water. When we go to another lake or stream, the nuisance species can be released. And, if the conditions are right, these introduced species can become established and create drastic results.
