Clean, Drain and Dry Boat Cleaning Procedures
You can prevent the spread of quagga and zebra mussels by using this checklist every time you take your boat out of a freshwater lake, river or stream:
California’s Quagga/Zebra Mussel Task Force developed a boat cleaning guide book for use by recreational boaters. The information contains general guidelines for all boaters and a basic checklist for inspecting and cleaning boats and recreational equipment for quagga/zebra mussels and other aquatic invasive species. There are also additional inspection and cleaning checklists for specific types of boats and equipment.
