Watercraft Inspections for Invasive Species
Action
Project
Each Unit (number)
The number of pre-launch watercraft inspections completed to search for aquatic invasive species and prevent their introduction into Lake Tahoe and other basin waterways. Currently, there are many aquatic invasive species of concern, including weeds, fish and invertebrates, which are not yet in Lake Tahoe. Of particular concern are quagga and zebra mussels. Reducing the risk of invasive species introductions will prevent impacts to aquatic ecosystems and the local economy. To this end, inspections are done on all watercraft before access is allowed to Lake Tahoe, Fallen Leaf Lake and Echo Lake.
