  4. 2009 Aquatic Invasive Species Interdiction Act

  5. Aquatic Invasive Species Definition 2009 AIS Interdiction Act {HB 2157}Title 17, Chapter 2 - §17-255. Definition of AIS “Any aquatic species that is not native to the ecosystem under consideration and whose introduction or presence in this State may cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health.This does not include any non-indigenous species (e.g., rainbow trout, largemouth bass) lawfully or historically introduced into the State for sportfishing purposes”

  6. 2009 Aquatic Invasive Species Interdiction Act Established the Aquatic Invasive Spp Program - with certain powers, prohibitions, violations, and penalties. Based on Self-Certifications and Owner/Transporter Compliance. Director’s Orders - DO1 = Establish an AIS List - DO2 = Establish an AIS Affected Waters List - DO3 = Establish Mandatory Conditions for Movement of Watercraft/Equipment from AIS Affected Waters.

Day Users {5 days of less in the water} 2. Long Term or Moored Boats {>5 days}

  9. AIS Director’s OrdersDO3 – Decon Protocols • DAY USERS • Day use vessels, boats, watercraft or other contrivances have the potential to carry live larval invasive species to other uninfected bodies of water.To disinfect your boat, the following decontamination protocols shall be taken: • Remove any clinging material such as plants, animals and mud from anchor, boat, motor, and trailer; • Remove the plug (if applicable) and drain the water from the bilge, live-well and any other compartments that could hold water. Drain water from engine and engine cooling system(s); • Dry boat and equipment. • If using the boat again in less than five days from the previous use: Replace bilge drain plug and disinfect the bilge by pouring not less than one gallon of vinegar into the bilge.

In other words..!!

  11. AIS Director’s OrdersDO3 – Decon Protocols • DAY USERS • Clean, Drain, and Dry your Watercraft and Equipment

  12. AIS Director’s OrdersDO3 – Decon Protocols • LONG TERM USERS OR MOORED BOATS • Vessels, boats, watercraft or contrivances that have been moored in waters that are AIS affected (e.g., Quagga) for longer than five days will likely be heavily contaminated with larval mussels. Boats that have been moored longer than a few weeks or months will be heavily contaminated with attached adult mussels. Typically these boats are very large with many through hull fittings and internal equipment that resists even the most meticulous decontamination effort. Therefore, mandatory decontamination procedures for these vessels will include minimum dry {desiccation} periods.

  13. AIS Director’s OrdersDO3 – Decon Protocols • LONG TERM USERS OR MOORED BOATS • Mandatory Procedures • - Remove any clinging material {plants, animals, mud} from anchor, boat, motor, boat, equipment and trailer. • - Remove the plug (if applicable) and drain the water from the bilge, live-well and any other compartments that could hold water. Drain water from engine and engine cooling system(s). • - Physically remove all attached mussels from boat surfaces, motors, impellers, outdrives, rudders and through hull fittings. • Keep the boat out of the water and ensure all areas of the boat are dry including bilge, through hull fittings and engine for a minimum of 18 consecutive days during the months of November through April and 7 consecutive days from May through October. • Where watercraft decon facilities exist, flush engine and cooling system and any other through hull fittings with hot water that exits at 140 degree Fahrenheit for 10 seconds.

  17. AISMandatory Procedure forTransport • AIS Boat Inspection Report • Self Inspection {completed by Owner and/or Transporter} • Must be completed and filed with AGFD AISP beforelongterm/moored watercraft is transported to another waterbody {…or State…} • If applicable, AGFD AISP will • inform {via Fax} the route and destination State(s) and/or Federal partners.

  22. Arizona StateAquatic Invasive Species Management Plan The goal of this plan is to: fully implement a coordinated strategy designed to prevent new, unintended introductions of AIS into the lower Colorado River and inland waters of the state, and; limit the spread of established populations of AIS into un-infested waters of the state, and; abate the harmful ecological, economic, social, and public health impacts resulting from AIS infestations.
