Alberta’s Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Prevention Program
Aquatic invasive species are one of the biggest threats facing our fresh water resources, both economically and ecologically. Since Alberta is land locked, initial introductions through ballast water are a non-issue but we do have major concerns with secondary spread from one water body to another, via boat traffic. Mussels can live up to 30 days out of water. So the threat of a boat moving from an infested body of water to an Albertan lake is very feasible for introduction. Prevention of mussels, as well as other invasive aquatic species, is paramount. Please be aware of all aquatic invasive species!
