Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship reports monitoring has shown a significant increase in the number of zebra mussels in Lake Winnipeg and the Red River.
The province is taking steps to address this issue as many boats moored in the Red River and Lake Winnipeg are being removed from the water with significant deposits of zebra mussels.
Manitobans are reminded that under the federal Fisheries Act, it is illegal to possess or transport zebra mussels. Zebra mussels are present in Lake Winnipeg south of Grindstone Point and in the Manitoba portion of the Red River.
There are measures boat owners have to undertake to comply with the law and prevent the spread of zebra mussels.
Manitobans can obtain this document:by emailing email@example.com; online at www.manitoba.ca/stopais starting tomorrow; in person at Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship regional offices in Riverton, Gimli, Winnipeg Beach, Selkirk, Pine Falls and Grand Beach between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday; or in person at Conservation and Water Stewardship at 200 Saulteaux Cres. in Winnipeg between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday to Friday.
Penalties for possessing zebra mussels may result in fines or prosecution under the federal Fisheries Act.
Watercraft inspection stations with decontamination units targeting aquatic invasive species (AIS) will be available for boaters at Selkirk Park through Sunday and at Pine Falls on Sunday.
These operations are focused on preventing the spread of larval zebra mussels, called veligers, from Lake Winnipeg and the Red River during weekend activities and at special events such as fishing tournaments and derbies. The watercraft inspection program is scheduled to continue until Oct. 11.
Everyone is asked to do their part and:clean and remove any visible aquatic plants, AIS or mud from the watercraft, trailer and all water-related equipment; drain all water from motor, bilge, bait buckets and any compartments; dry all water-related equipment and any hard-to-drain compartments that have contacted the water with a dry towel or sponge before it is used in any other body of water; and dispose of unused bait and worms in the trash.
To report a zebra mussel or any other AIS from a location, take pictures and visit the website at www.manitoba.ca/stopaisor call 1-87-STOP AIS-0 (1-877-867-2470).
