I would like to see a scientific study that demonstrates how restricting boater access to a lake has prevented the introduction of an invasive species. Or, a study that shows that washing boats has prevented the introduction of AIS. I mean that. If evidence exists that restricting access to lakes or washing boats prevents AIS, I want to know about it. Because I haven't seen it yet, and without it, all we're talking about is restricting our freedom to use public waterways based on lake-property owners pushing somebody's theory of what might work.

If you want evidence that restricting boaters slows invasives. How many lakes without public accesses have any AIS compared to the surrounding area.

What are you saying Otter?

Shut all lakes down so that no one can enjoy them?? Except property owners. Mmmm, are you one of those people?

No, just that slowing access does slow down invasives.

That's would be circumstantial at best Otter. Just because invasive are not present in a particular lake does not mean that lack of access is the reason. Plenty of lakes with access also have no invasives.

Man by in large is the biggest threat in the spread of AIS. So therefore, if accesses were closed it would not spread as quickly. I would gather that's why the most popular (used) lakes are the first to get A IS.

That being said I agree with most that closing accesses is ludicrous.

Seeing the progression......


I see a real possibility of an angry boater or two, after losing reasonable(unfettered) access to their favorite lakes retaliating with intentional AIS stocking. I can see it now.....
