Stopping the spread – Check, Clean, Dry

As we continue to track the spread of invasive non-native species (INNS) throughout the Clyde catchment we’d like to remind all river users of how you can help halt the spread of these harmful organisms. Remember these 3 simple steps: Check, Clean, Dry.

  • Check your equipment and clothing for live organisms – particularly in areas that are damp or hard to inspect.
  • Clean and wash all equipment, footwear and clothes thoroughly. If you do come across any organisms, leave them at the water body where you found them.
  • Dry all equipment and clothing – some species can live for many days in moist conditions. Make sure you don’t transfer water elsewhere.
