BE PART OF THE SOLUTION - DON'T ADD TO THE PROBLEM

NY DEC + West Virginia listing of possible solutions to disinfect boats/livewells/equipment!!

There are examples of various common ingredients to use for 'invasive-proofing' your boat.

Please read and adapt a solution that fits your situation and convenience. This does not have to be done at the launch - BUT it DOES have to be done when you get home, and prior to launching anywhere else, with time allowed for sustained contact.

It regards the stance the NYBCF Is taking on the black bass aquaculture

We have approximately two weeks to get your opinion to the DEC for public consideration. The Aquaculture industry has petitioned the DEC for permission to see LIVE black bass (laregmouth). We have read over and discussed these proposed regulations and have come up with a statement. We want all of you to copy/paste and send these statements (the NYBCF has one and the Fisheries Advisory Board also has provided us with one). You can cut and paste our our statements into a letter of your own, and add your own opinions of how this can potentially affect the black bass fisheries of NY state, but GET AN EMAIL OUT TO THE IDENTIFIED RECIPIENT:
