Minnesota aquatic invasive species control - Minnesota DNR is stepping up efforts to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Armed with tougher laws and more costly penalties for violators, the DNR will staff portable “stop-and-inspect” stations as well as portable “decontamination” boat washers to spray down watercraft and trailers thought to be carrying invasive species such as zebra mussels, Asian carp, round gobies, spiny water fleas, and Eurasian watermilfoil.
