PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Boaters and anglers in South Dakota must follow new rules aimed at slowing the spread of invasive species in waterways.

The new rules finalized earlier this year by the state Game Fish and Parks Commission took effect Monday. Among the requirements is removing vegetation and aquatic invasive species from boats and boat trailers. And transporting bait or fish in water taken from a lake, river or stream is not allowed.
