|Aquatic Invasive Species|
Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) have been a growing issue in the natural resources management community and recreational boating industry. Fishing, boating, and tourism are all harmed by AIS, putting water access at risk.
Recently, ABYC hosted the AIS Summit to engage major stakeholders in an in-depth dialogue regarding prevention, inspection and decontamination of boats.
The Summit was held January 27-28 at the South Point Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Attendees focused on identifying and vetting opportunities related to boat design and construction, component/system design and installation, engine and propulsion systems, and trailer design and construction.
Minutes are now available and open to all interested parties. The minutes can be found on ABYC's online store, "Ships Store". Once in the store, please "add item" and proceed to checkout.
