PREVENT THE SPREAD OF WHIRLING DISEASE
Whirling disease is not harmful to humans but can have significant effects on trout populations. Fish infected with whirling disease may exhibit a “whirling” swimming behavior due to the parasite impairing the nervous system. It is spread through equipment used for fishing and infected fish. Before moving your boat, hip waders, wading boots or any other fishing equipment from one water body to another be sure to clean it. Remove all mud, sand and plant material before leaving the shore. Boats need to be rinsed, scrubbed, pressure washed and air dried for a minimum of 24 hours. Waders, boots and nets need to be sterilized in the preferred disinfectant, Quat. This is available at your local cleaning supply business. Whirling disease has been detected in many watershed in Alberta. If you fish in Alberta this summer be sure to clean your fishing equipment before using it again in Saskatchewan. disinfection guidelines
