EP:18 Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention
In this episode of the Bluegills to Bull Sharks Podcast we talked about Aquatic Invasive Species (A.I.S.). We discuss some of the species that are effecting the Midwest as well as the announcement of the Illinois DNR to reintroduce alligator gar as a means of natural population control for Asian Carp. I think it's a great idea since studies have proven that they don't have any adverse affects on the game fish populations. Plus, I would love the chance to catch a monster gar relatively close to home. I also gave a few tips on how as human powered anglers we can be proactive in helping to stop A.I.S. One of the products I mentioned was the Rinse Kit, a self contained pressurized spray unit. It works wonderfully and is an inexpensive answer to cleaning our boats when a water source isn't present. Aquatic Invasive Species prevention is something we should all take seriously. It all starts with you (and me) together we can make a difference.
