Help us “Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers” and keep <strong>Idaho</strong> waters pure andmussel free! Watercraft inspections are an important element of the<strong>Idaho</strong>’s invasive species prevention efforts. The Invasive Species Passporttracks your inspections and allows inspectors to give an expedited“low-risk” inspection to local boaters and spend additional time scrutinizing“high-risk” boats that have come into the Pacific Northwest frommussel fouled waters. The Passports are voluntary—you are notrequired to have or keep one—but they can help you to get out on thewater faster! We encourage you to enjoy <strong>Idaho</strong>’s waters, and thank youfor your participation in keeping them as pristine as possible.visitidaho.org |115
