Do not dump contents of exotic water gardens into wetlands
boats, canoes, kayaks, and paddles thoroughly before using
them in a different water body. Be sure to empty
bilge water and rinse of boat trailers as well.
not dump contents of aquariums into wetlands or ponds.
Fish and plants from aquariums are often non-native species.
