Manitoba’s Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Regulation

Posted on: September 12, 2019  |  

Under Manitoba’s Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) regulation under The Water Protection Act, it is the law to undertake specific actions to be free of aquatic invasive species such as Zebra Mussel.  This includes actions such as needing to remove AIS, and plants, and draining water from water craft and water related equipment before leaving the shore of a water body.  Drain plugs must be removed when transporting watercraft over land.

The set fines are in effect for offences under the AIS legislation ranging from $174 to $2542.

For more information from Sustainable Development on AIS including laws and set fines, please visit their webpage at https://www.gov.mb.ca/sd/environment_and_biodiversity/invasive_species/fish_and_wildlife/index.html or call (toll-free) 1-87-STOP AIS-0 (1-877-867-2470).
