By following a simple procedure each time we leave the water, we can stop aquatic hitchhikers. The Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers web site is part of the ANS Task Force public awareness campaign and is sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Coast Guard.

  • Protect Your Waters and Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers
    Welcome to a site for recreational users who want to help stop aquatic nuisance species. As Americans, we love to spend time on the water. Protecting these resources is an important part of our overall enjoyment. A concern we must all address is the spreading of harmful plants, animals and other organisms. These aquatic nuisance species can hitch a ride on our clothing, boats, and items used in the water. When we go to another lake or stream, the nuisance species can be released. And, if the conditions are right, these introduced species can become established and create drastic results.

  • The Freshwater Trust - We Fix Rivers
    Given the trends of freshwater indicators and wild fish populations, it has become clear that the traditional conservation methods engaged over the last quarter century are proving inadequate to demands placed on our ecosystems. The system of laws, procedures and funding — while providing key protections and needed building blocks — has become badly fragmented at a time when we cannot afford to be anything less than efficient. Bulwarks intended to thwart reckless extraction have grown into barriers to restoration. We have all the ingredients for success: willing landowners, well-intended agencies, capable locals and millions of dollars of annual investment, and yet we are not gaining ground. We must change course. The Freshwater Trust builds and implements the tools and methods that can accelerate results for our freshwater ecosystems. Portland, Oregon
