    Also keep in mind that endangered and threatened species from other countries are BANNED as well. I found a story from a couple years ago...guy brought in an Arowana and was arrested by U.S. Customs.

    California:
    Pirahnas are illegal to Buy/Sell within the state.

    I do believe that if you move into california with an existing pet pirahna, you're OK. Same rule applies to Ferrets as well...

    TEXAS -- Surprisingly, this conservative state, not known for rampant environmentalism, has quite possibly the most extensive list of prohibited FW species I've ever seen, makes California's regulations seem laissez-faire in comparison.

    LOL. It may have been more expedient for Texas to merely list the allowed species and provide that all unlisted species are illegal.

    I could be wrong, but I think African arowanas are now legal with no permit requirement as well.

    All arowana species, except the Asian arowana, are, and always have been, legal to own throughout the USA without any special permit (although some states, such as hawaii, have restrictions on them).

    From the Missouri Wildlife Code at http://www.sos.mo.gov/adrules/csr/current/3csr/3c10-4.pdf:

    Endangered species: lake sturgeon, pallid sturgeon, taillight shiner, Neosho madtom, spring cavefish, harlequin darter, goldstripe darter, cypress minnow, central mudminnow, crystal darter, swamp darter, Ozark cavefish, Niangua darter, Sabine shiner, mountain madtom, redfin darter, longnose darter, flathead chub, Topeka shiner.

    Prohibited species:
    (C) Fishes: Live fish or viable eggs of snakehead fish of the genera Channa or Parachanna (or the generic synonyms of Bostrychoides, Ophicephalus, Ophiocephalus and Parophio-cephalus); walking catfish of the family Clariidae.

    Interesting and informative thread. Also interesting that species that are endangered in other states (e.g., longear sunfish, redhorse) are very common and even legal to use as bait in Missouri.

    Hello,
    So great to here from another person in MASS! Here is what I know is illegal here
    -Channel cats
    -Walking cats
    -Piranhas
    -Gars
    -White Clouds

    I know their more but this is all I can think of for now..they are harder here on illegal plants then the fish.
