Penn State Extension Assists in
Trout Release Educational Program
The students were reminded that during the summer it is important to clean your boat and fishing gear before moving from one water body to another. A one inch fragment of some aquatic weeds can repopulate an entire pond or lake. Humans are the main spreaders of aquatic invasives, so it is up to everyone that uses these recreational areas to protect them from invasives.
Much more information is available on this topic by visiting the PA Sea Grant webpage at http://www.paseagrant.org/ and searching for “aquatic invasives”.
