A concern we must all address is the spreading of harmful plants, animals and other organisms. These aquatic nuisance species can hitch a ride on our clothing, boats, and items used in the water. When we go to another lake or stream, the nuisance species can be released. And, if the conditions are right, these introduced species can become established and create drastic results. Information provided by the Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) Task Force and is sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
