Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness week kicks off

Industry News, News | March 1, 2022 | By:

Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week, running Feb. 28-March 4, 2022, draws attention to Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS), aquatic organisms that invade ecosystems beyond their natural, historic range and whose introduction can cause significant economic and environmental damage to regions.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) continues to be an active partner to outdoor recreation and government agencies working to combat the spread of AIS by promoting changes in boat designs, boater education programs, and federal, state and local decontamination and inspection programs.

Industry stakeholders are encouraged to share resources with their networks and across their social channels, e-mails and external communications with industry partners, including:

  • North American Invasive Species Management Association (NAISMA) free webinars
  • National Invasive Species Awareness Week free toolkit
  • Three Things Boat and Trailer Manufacturers Can Do to Stop the Spread of AIS via LinkedIn
  • “Clean, Drain, Dry: How Boaters Can Help Stop the Spread of AIS” via Discover Boating
