Aquatic invasive species like didymo and the New Zealand mud snail represent a serious threat to our fisheries. The best way to prevent the spread of these invasive species is to thoroughly clean your boots, waders and boat any time you move from one piece of water to another. Regardless of the material on the sole of your wading boots, cleaning your gear thoroughly is the most important step you can take.
