Failure to do so is not an excuse. This publication is only a summary.

Its goal, through education and other activities, is to prevent the introduction and spread of AIS in Nebraska. The program is funded by an Aquatic Invasive Species Fee collected from residents and nonresidents as follows: ▶ Residents: A $5 Aquatic Invasive Species Fee is added to three-year Nebraska boat registrations. See page 4. ▶ Nonresidents: Motorized watercraft registered outside of Nebraska are required to purchase and display a $15 annual Aquatic Invasive Species Stamp before launching from any Nebraska boat ramp. See page 15.
