Aquatic Nuisance Species Reminder
Before moving to a new body of water you must wash your boat, waders, boots, or anything that may carry Aquatic Nuisance Species.
This has become habit for many in the last several years with the increased education regarding evil parasites and such that can creep into our recreational waters. For some the Yellowstone PKD disaster will remind us that it is very real. ANS is a real thing and can damage families, businesses, farming, water supply movement, even the food we eat. It is far reaching and very dangerous.
So the 10 minutes that it takes to scrub your boat down with soap and water is not too bad at all. Certainly considering the damage that it can cause. Catastrophic damage to resources.
Check out the Montana AIS, Aquatic Invasive Species, site for more info. It is worth the couple minutes to educate yourself further. ANS and AIS are both used in this context depending on who is speaking about it. Same thing.
We have a boat wash station at Headhunters here in Craig. We have since we opened. Any an all welcome to wash their hard sider, raft, pontoon boat, tube, or water wings here at the shop 24/7. Stop in anytime and get that craft clean!
A short video this Sunday to get your boat washing juices flowing! You can do this with a Coors Light in hand. Or nearby.
