Train Local Groups to Inspect and Wash Fishing Tourney Boats
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-6.  This project will draw upon existing partnerships within the Great Lakes basin to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) by training local community groups to efficiently and effectively inspect and wash boats at fishing tournaments.   National tournament organizers often lack the personnel to clean boats before or after such tournaments, and they rely on local groups to help launch and retrieve boats, park vehicles and direct traffic.  Training local volunteers to inspect and clean tournament boats will help minimize AIS-risk via this potential AIS pathway.
