$826,000 AIS Battle In Koronis

Minnesota AIS Training for Lake Service Providers - In 2011, the Legislature passed a number of new laws related to prevention and management of aquatic invasive species (AIS) that apply to boaters, property owners, service providers, bait dealers and others involved with the transportation of water-related equipment.

Individuals who work for a service provider must also take training.
