Invasive Species permits required for all paddle craft

Posted: Tuesday, Mar 26th, 2013




As of Jan. 1, 2010, all Oregon motor boats, sail boats, and paddle craft 10 feet and longer are required to purchase an Aquatic Invasive Species Permit (AISP). Passed by the 2009 Oregon Legislature, this program funds the single largest invasive species prevention effort ever implemented within Oregon.

The Oregon State Marine Board along with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife are working together with the boating population to stop the spread of invasive species into the Oregon waterways.

Boaters from outside the state are required to purchase the AISP permit upon entering Oregon before they launch their boat. Registered Oregon motor boats will not need to purchase the permit, the fee is automatically added to the cost of registration.
