Aquatic Invasive Mussels
Department: Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment
WHEREAS mussels are an aquatic invasive species of fresh water bodies and have major economic impacts on the economy; and waters that are infested with them to the east and south of Saskatchewan borders are virtually impossible to eradicate; and
WHEREAS early prevention of having Saskatchewan waters infested with mussels will be more economical than trying to deal with infestations; and
WHEREAS the most likely way for Saskatchewan to become infested is by boats coming from infested waters;
BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the Provincial Government to establish check points on all border crossings on the Saskatchewan east and south borders and have infested boats decontaminated before entering Saskatchewan.
