Guidance for Boaters

Contaminated  boats, gear and equipment can cause the spread of invasive species to new water bodies. Invasive plants and animals can be small and hard to spot and they can survive for weeks on damp boats, gear and equipment.

All boaters using rivers, lakes, canals and marine waterways can help to protect the environment and sport they enjoy by remembering to Check, Clean and Dry their boats, gear and equipment when moving between different waterbodies. A range of biosecurity awareness raising materials are available for you and your club, outlining the key steps you can take to reduce the risk of spreading invasive species.

Download these free materials for your club or events to protect our environments and to be a part of the Check, Clean, Dry campaign.
If you require high quality print ready versions of any of the materials please contact us: [email protected]
