The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has announced new regulations to help prevent aquatic invasive species from entering the state on watercraft.  The new regulations require that any watercraft transported into Wyoming from March 1st through November 30th must undergo a mandatory inspection by an authorized inspector prior to launching in any water of the state.  Additionally, any watercraft that has been in a water infested with zebra or quagga mussels within the past 30 days is required to undergo a mandatory inspection by an authorized inspector prior to launching year-round. Chris Wight, Game and Fish AIS crew leader for the Jackson Region says in northwestern Wyoming, there will be permanent inspection stations at the Port of Entry in Alpine near the junction of US-89 and US-26 and at the rest area in Thayne along US-89. Wright adds that there will also be check stations operating on a rotating basis at the Sleeping Indian Turnout on US-89 just north of Jackson in Grand Teton National Park and on Skyline Drive in Pinedale.
