New guide to help protect coastal waters

18 Mar 2011

pestThere are more than one million recreational vessels in Australia and there is huge opportunity for marine pests to be inadvertently spread as boats move from one place to another.

Identifying and reducing these marine pests has just been made easier, thanks to a new guide published by the Conservation Council SA.

The Boat Owners Guide to Caring for our Coastal Waters  is a 16-page booklet detailing practical ways to reduce your boat’s running costs, while also looking after our coastal waters.

The aim of the guide is to inform boat owners about simple actions they can take to help reduce marine pests.
