Title

Scuba divers can help stop aquatic hitchhikers

Description

Divers can unintentionally spread freshwater aquatic nuisance species (ANS) such as the zebra or quagga mussel, New Zealand Mudsnail (NZMS), Eurasian watermilfoil, spiny water flea, or Asian clam from one body of water to another on their scuba diving gear. Some ANS larvae are invisible to the naked eye and can survive hours to weeks on wet scuba gear or in water inside equipment. By adhering to the following guidelines, you can help prevent the spread of ANS when you scuba dive.
