IF IF IF NOT ANNEX 2 Protocol of disinfection of boats to prevent the entry of the mussel Zebra (Dreissena polymorpha) in the basin of the Guadiana the mussel Zebra (Dreissena polymorpha) is a species native of them waters of the Sea Black and Caspian. Due to its invasive nature and the serious environmental and economic damage that can produce, it is necessary to take preventive measures to prevent their entry into the Guadiana basin. In particular, in relation to the disinfection and cleaning of vessels or materials that can come from already infested areas, since this species has the ability to scroll in a larval State in the waters that remain in the vessels, vehicles or trailers, and even fishing gear or other utensils.

A boat with motor: A1 cleaning of the exterior elements of the boat, trailer and vehicle. All those parts of the boat, trailer and vehicle that have been in contact with the water, as well as vessels or departments used as nurseries, for the storage of waste water or water from the River should be cleaned.

Remove any debris that has been able to adhere to town or to the engine of the boat by means of hot water pressure. The minimum temperature of the wash water must be of 60 ° C and preferably should be dealt with chlorinated water.

He water employed in the cleaning of the boat not can go in any case to courses of water or networks of sewerage, must collect is in deposits or pour is directly on field filter.

He is recommended the use of pressure washers who meet the following characteristics: pressure: 160 bar minimum.

Working temperature: 60 ° C minimum. Heater instant.

Flow: 600-1200 l/h.

A hose of sufficient length to reach all the parts to wash with comfort.

Power supply: Preferably diesel, to ensure the operation on any site without need for electrical outlet.

If disinfection in the place of entry of the vessel is not possible with a mobile team of cleaning and disinfection, fixed station nearest disinfection should be used.

Spray with disinfectant solution (you must add 1 ml/l, i.e. 20 drops of chlorine bleach per each gallon of water) the less accessible areas of the boat.

A2. Cleaning and renovation of the engine cooling circuit. The cleaning must do is with some system that ensures the circulation of water hot (60 ° C) by the system of cooling of the motor. Mainly there are two types: submerged motor in a bowl with hot water, for small engines.

To circulate hot water pressure by the cooling circuit, directly, if possible, or with the help of special parts that facilitate this work.

At the end of the navigation, renew the engines with water cooling circuits. For this purpose a small acceleration is recommended before stopping the engine to raise the speed of the water flow and temperature of the engine thus causing the death of the larvae. Subsequently removed the engine from water and rinse with clean water.

B. boats without motor.

Before putting the boat in a river, will ensure that the boat or canoe is completely dry and clean, to avoid the transfer of Mussel larvae and the introduction of adults.

In the place where appropriate disinfection, be the emptying of the water from the inside of the kayak or boat. If the boat is unsinkable, the helmet must be drained also.

The vessel is carefully inspect to remove any that may appear attached to the helmet.

Spray with solution disinfectant (is must add 1 ml / l, i.e. some 20 drops of bleach by each litre of water) them areas of the boat less accessible.

C. sailing boats.

He process of disinfection and cleaning of them boats of candle will be the same that the of them boats to rowing, and if available of engine auxiliary this is clean and will renew as figure in the paragraph A.2 D. tables of windsurfing and float tubes.

The surfboards, in its various forms, or the means of different floating (float tubes, ducks, catamaran...) will be subject to disinfection and cleaning in a way analogous to the rowing boats.

Disinfection of equipment. For all the previous assumptions, in cases where appropriate, the following recommendations will be followed: will proceed to the emptying of remains of water ballast and nurseries the boat, tanks, bilges, as well as the teams that have been in contact with the water.

Must be special care and attention with those parts that could accidentally contain copies of mussels, as the drawing of the sole of the boots, hooks, screws, etc.

Gear (nets, pots, etc.) should be disinfected, either by dipping or spraying with disinfectant solution (you must add 1 ml/l, i.e. 20 drops of chlorine bleach per each gallon of water). Is should have special care of that them waters of wash not back to the half water, to avoid conditions to others agencies.

He rest of the team sports that has State in contact with the water (helmet, shovels of remo, life, etc.) must be disinfected well by soaking, immersion or fumigation with a solution disinfectant (is must add 1 ml / l, i.e. some 20 drops of bleach by each litre of water). You must take care that water washing do not return to the aquatic environment, to prevent conditions to other organisms.

Competitions. The organizers of any sports competition (fishing, canoeing, rowing,...) in which to intervene any vessel or floating, that takes place within the scope of management of the Guadiana hydrographic Confederation, shall ensure that all vessels or participating devices receive a treatment appropriate to their characteristics. A certificate issued by the Guadiana hydrographic Confederation or approved body shall be required.




The species is found in full dispersion, it can be in places where it is not known, therefore, always acting as if he were present.






If you see an animal similar to the Zebra Mussel, or suspected presence, put it into immediate awareness of hydrographic of the Guadiana (924 31 66 00), the autonomous community or the SEPRONA.
