Wyoming’s Aquatic Invasive species (AIS) program is now entering its fifth year. The program, established by the Wyoming Legislature in 2010, is designed prevent the introduction of invasive species, specifically zebra and quagga mussels, to Wyoming waters. Game and Fish spokesman Al Langston says the most common way mussels are spread throughout infested waters is by launching boats in clean waters after launching them in waters where mussels are present.

Wyoming regulations require that watercraft transported into Wyoming between March 1 and November 30 must undergo a mandatory inspection by an authorized inspector prior to launching in any water of the state. Any watercraft that has been in a water infested with zebra or quagga mussels within the past 30 days is required to undergo a mandatory inspection by an authorized inspector prior to launching year round.

Inspections can be done year round at all Game and Fish regional offices and a number of other locations throughout the state.

Langston said AIS inspection stations at ports of entry, border locations, and boat ramps will be in operation beginning April 26 this year and will continue through Sept. 15. Once your boat is inspected, a wire seal will be placed on your boat to connect it to the trailer and you will be provided with a paper receipt to document your inspection.
