Aquatic Invasive Species
The province has ramped up inspections for invasive species, such as zebra and quagga mussels, that are known to hitchhike on watercraft. Inspections prevent major damage to Alberta’s waterways and fisheries. Inspections stations are mandatory and are now open on major highways as well as boat launches throughout the province. Expect to be inspected.

Once introduced to a waterbody, non-native mussels are virtually impossible to eradicate. An infestation of invasive mussels is estimated to cost the province more than $75 million annually – including damage to infrastructure and recreational opportunities.
