JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Wildlife officials are reminding boaters of a program aimed at keeping harmful invasive species like zebra and quagga mussels out of Wyoming waterways.

State regulations require that any watercraft brought into Wyoming from March 1 through Nov. 30 must be inspected before launching. Boats that have been in a body of water infested with zebra or quagga mussels within the past 30 days are required to undergo an inspection prior to launching year-round.

The mussels, which colonize in large clusters, ruin infrastructure and destroy fisheries, can hitch a ride on boats in infested waterways.
