0570450 - MARINE INVASIVE SPECIES PROGRAM
This program provides revenue for the Marine Invasive Species Control Fund and is often referred to as the Ballast Water Management Program. The fees provide funding to the California State Lands Commission to prevent or minimize the introduction and spread of non-indigenous aquatic species into California waters. Owners or operators of qualifying vessels carrying, or capable of carrying, ballast water from outside California are subject to the fee. The BOE administers the program in partnership with the Commission.
