Trailered watercraft is considered a key pathway for the spread and introduction of aquatic invasive species (AIS) to inland waters throughout North America.
The Call Before You Haul 1.0 program was initiated in late 2022 by Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species via trailered watercraft. There remains a significant number of infested watercraft coming from the Great Lakes regions of the United States and Canada to western states. Call Before You Haul 2.0 is an effort to work collaboratively with Great Lakes region entities to reduce interstate transport of aquatic invasive species – for the benefit of all states and provinces.
Join us on February 22, 2024 at 10am Pacific Time as we launch Call Before You Haul 2.0. Make a difference as we work collaboratively to protect North American waterbodies from aquatic invasive species.
