FWP seeking public comment on AIS

[03.13.2017]

Preventing the transport and infestation of aquatic invasive species continues to be a priority for FWP.

The proposed rule changes clarify that decontamination at AIS inspection stations may include appropriate drying time of a boat or vessel, which may mean locking the vessel to the trailer or storing it in a secure place to prevent launching.

Additionally, the proposal includes a new rule that would require boat operators to remove any “drain plug, bailer, valves or other devices that prevent water drainage from bilges, ballasts or livewells” during transport.

The proposed new rule would also require boat operators to remove all aquatic vegetation from their vessel, trailer and equipment before leaving the boat ramp or parking area.

The proposed changes acknowledge the threat AIS pose to Montana’s waterways and attempt to address high-risk vectors of contamination.

Public hearings on the [/news/publicNotices/rules/pn_0204.html]proposed amendments and adoption will be held March 15 at 6 p.m. at FWP Headquarters in Helena and at regional offices in Missoula, Bozeman and Great Falls; and on March 16 at 6 p.m. at FWP regional offices in Kalispell, Billings, Glasgow and Miles City.

Written comments may be submitted to Fisheries Division, Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, Montana, 59620-0701; or e-mail fwpfsh@mt.gov, and must be received no later than March 25, 2016.
