By The Staff

SANTA FE — All boats soon will be subject to inspection and possible decontamination before launching in New Mexico waters under new rules adopted to combat the spread of harmful aquatic invasive species.
The new rules, approved by the State Game Commission at its Jan. 14 meeting, will take effect Feb. 12. Changes to the AIS rules include:
• Mandatory watercraft inspection required any time an inspection station is set up and in operation.
• Mandatory inspection and, if necessary, decontamination of all out-of-state registered watercraft or watercraft re-entering the state of New Mexico.
• Fourteen-day advance notification of intent to transport watercraft 26 feet long or longer into New Mexico.
• All boaters are required to “pull the plug” and drain watercraft when transporting in New Mexico.
• Implementation of a voluntary watercraft seal program to expedite boater access to a waterbody with limited need for inspection.
