Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention in Oregon
The first line of defense in Oregon’s fight to keep zebra mussels and other non-native aquatic species from invading Oregon waters are the boat-inspections stations at Interstate 5’s Oregon Port of Entry near Ashland.

Since the program began in 2010, inspections of boats heading north on I-5 from California have started in May to coincide with the summer boating season. However, this year inspections started three months earlier. The early opening is one of several increases to the program, which is funded by the $5 Oregon Invasive Species Permit that boaters must have on hand whenever they operate anything from kayaks to yachts on Oregon waterways.

Last year, the program inspected 4,526 vessels and unearthed 18 cases of zebra or quagga mussels which needed to be decontaminated along with 33 other boats that had other aquatic invasive species such as Eurasian watermilfoil.
