This article comes from Herp Alliance (a reptile group), but the laws they are talking about in it would effect people who collect wild native fish as well. I thought I'd pass it along for those who live there or who collect there. If it passes it could prohibit all native collecting.

This sounds unfortunate.

The original list had a couple fish on it (mosquito fish, snakeheads), but in July 2014, the board came up with a revised list after much backlash from pet owners.  There are currently no fish listed.  Here is the link to the latest revision that I could find:




The board will meet each year to revise the list as necessary.
