Cleaning Boats

Removing pests and water plants

Keeping your boat and related equipment clean helps stop the spread of aquatic pests around our coastline and between rivers & lakes. These hitchhiking pests love the bottom of your boat and those hidden niche areas where they thrive.

It is important to regularly clean your boat - especially when changing location. If you don't keep it clean you could be spreading pests around New Zealand's coastlines, rivers and lakes.

Let's do our bit and help stop the spread of pests in NZ waters.
