28. Float planes can also harbor Zebra or Quagga mussels, or their larvae, either directly attached to the hull; on aquatic vegetation and organic debris entangled in rudders, wheels or lines; or in standing water within the floats. Therefore, float plane pilots need to make sure that their float planes have been cleaned of all aquatic vegetation and debris and attached mussels, and that the floats are completely drained and dried as much as possible before departing an infested waterbody (see paragraph 27 for information on infested water bodies). Similar to the requirement for boaters in paragraph 27 above, pilots calling in to the TRC must inform the CBSA that the float planes moving between freshwater bodies are compliant. Similar to the instructions in paragraph 27, if pilots require assistance to become compliant, they must contact the relevant provincial or federal authorities (see Appendix).
