What you can do to stop invasives

CLEAN - Remove all plants, animals, and mud from your boat, anchor, boots, and other equipment before you enter and after you leave the water. If traveling to another body of water, rinse equipment and boat hulls with high-pressure hot water at a hot water wash station.

DRAIN - Before leaving the area, drain all the water from your boat, including the motor, bilge, livewell, ballast, hull, and anything else that traps water. Leave drain plugs out during transport.

DRY - Dry all compartments and equipment completely before entering another body of water.
