Pledge to Protect Minnesota Waters

Check out the MN DNR pledge site to help spread the word on the importance of aquatic invasive species (AIS) prevention.

I will always take these required steps to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS):

  • Clean my boat and gear to remove plants and prohibited invasive species.

  • Drain all water and leave plugs out during transport.

  • Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash.

  • Never release bait, plants or aquarium pets into Minnesota waters.

  • Dry docks, lifts and rafts for 21 days before moving them from one water body to another.

I will take these additional steps to reduce the risk of spreading AIS whenever possible:

  • Decontaminate my equipment – find free stations at

  • Spray my equipment with high-pressure water or rinse it with very hot water (120 degrees or at least two minutes or 140 degrees for at least 10 seconds).

  • Dry my boat and gear for five days before using in another water body.
