Decal Required on ALL Watercraft

A new law which passed in 2011 (Minnesota Statues 86B.508) requires a watercraft owner or operator to obtain and attach an aquatic invasive species rules decal to all types of watercraft prior to launching on, entering into, or operating on any waters of the state.  This does not just mean licensed motorized boats, it includes everything from canoes, kayaks, and paddleboats to sea planes.

According to an article at MPR News, "The stickers are now available at all Department of Motor Vehicle offices and all Department of Natural Resources regional offices.  Sporting goods stores, however, have been having trouble getting them."  (Source Article: MinnesotaPublicRadio.org )

The DNR has posted answers to questions about the decal here:
