Aquatic Pests and Diseases

Aquatic pests have the potential to destroy marine and freshwater environments and to decimate recreational and commercial fisheries and other aquatic industries.

Be aware of the threats your boating, fishing and diving gear poses as a carrier of pests between waterways. By thoroughly cleaning surfaces and removing any water or organic material that may harbour threats you can prevent the spread of many aquatic diseases and marine pests.
