In 2019, the ministry checked more than 3,100 watercraft for signs of aquatic invasive species (AIS), identifying 1,147 as high-risk and requiring further inspection. In all, 217 watercraft were decontaminated and no AIS were found. Anyone transporting watercraft in Saskatchewan must remove the boat plug, stop at watercraft inspection stations and submit to inspection, or risk a $500 fine. It is also illegal to bring prohibited aquatic invasive species into Saskatchewan.
