Sur l’eau

Zebra, quagga mussels, Asian carp and snakefish have long been known to pose threats to boaters. However, lionfish have the potential to become the most disastrous marine invasion in history, by drastically reducing the abundance of coral reef fish and leaving behind a devastated ecosystem, according to Capt. Mike Genoun, host of Florida Sportfishing.

According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, aquatic invasive species like zebra mussels and Eurasian water milfoil spread to new waters by hitching rides on boats and trailers. Additional tips on invasive species prevention for boaters, seaplane pilots and anglers can be found on the Wisconsin DNR website.
