Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks hosted a meeting of the watercraft inspection station partners in Helena.

Montana had more than 35 watercraft inspection stations spread across the state, open from April to October. FWP worked with six partner agencies and organizations to operate and staff these stations. More than 96,000 boats have been inspected so far this year, eclipsing the number of boats inspected in 2017 by 10,000.

The partners met over two days to discuss how the season went and to make plans for 2019. The partners made suggestions on improving inspection protocols and training inspectors to ensure consistency state-wide. FWP plans to improve signage at the stations and at boat ramps.
