    In Minnesota

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Jump to: navigation, search
    The List of Minnesota fish lists fish found naturally in Minnesota waters, including Lake Superior. According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Minnesota is home to 158 fish species.
    The species data on this page is taken from the Minnesota DNR, which also uses several labels to indicate a fish's status within Minnesota waters. An endangered fish species is near extinction in Minnesota, a threatened species is likely to become endangered within the foreseeable future, and a special concern species is either extremely uncommon in Minnesota or has unique or highly specific habitat requirements.
    Several types of Minnesota fish are considered non-native invasive species. A prohibited invasive species is illegal to possess in Minnesota without a permit, and a regulated invasive species is legal to possess but still may not be released into public waters. Many invasive fish species are nonetheless already well-established.

    [edit] Non-game fish

    [edit] Invasive species not currently in Minnesota

    According to the DNR, these prohibited or regulated invasive fish species threaten Minnesota natural resources but are not currently known to be in Minnesota public waters.
    • Bighead carp Hypophthalmichthys nobilis (prohibited invasive)
    • Black carp Mylopharyngodon piceus (prohibited invasive)
    • Grass carp Ctenopharyngodon idella (prohibited invasive)
    • Rudd Scardinius erythrophthalmus (prohibited invasive)
    • Silver carp Hypophthalmichthys molitrix (prohibited invasive)
    • Tilapia Oneochromis, Sartheradon, and Tilapia spp. (regulated invasive)
    • Zander Stizostedion lucioperca (prohibited invasive)

    Saw this tonight at Franks aquarium. Ornamental shrimp and crayfish are prohibited from importation into the State of Hawaii.
    Hope inverts are not off topic here.

    Why can’t I buy GloFish® fluorescent fish in Australia, Canada, or Europe?
    At present, Australia, Canada, and Europe prohibit the marketing of any genetically modified organisms, including our tropical fluorescent zebra fish, until they are cleared through a formal review process.
    Glofish is prohibited in California.
    Please note that these fish may not be sold or transferred to anyone in the State of California, as this is prohibited by California Law. The producers of GloFishâ fluorescent fish request that all consumers respect this regulation. For more information about this issue, please visit
    For Virginians:

    4 VAC 15-30-10 - Possession, importation, sale, etc., of wild animals.

    Under the authority of §§ 29.1-103 and 29.1-521 of the Code of Virginia it shall be unlawful to take, possess, import, cause to be imported, export, cause to be exported, buy, sell, offer for sale, or liberate within the Commonwealth any wild animal unless otherwise specifically permitted by law or regulation. Unless otherwise stated, for the purposes of identifying species regulated by the board, when both the scientific and common names are listed, the scientific reference to genus and species will take precedence over common names.

    4 VAC 15-30-40 - Importation requirements, possession and sale of nonnative (exotic) animals. A. Permit required. A special permit is required and may be issued by the department, if consistent with the department's fish and wildlife management program, to import, possess, or sell those nonnative (exotic) animals listed below that the board finds and declares to be predatory or undesirable within the meaning and intent of § 29.1-542 of the Code of Virginia, in that their introduction into the Commonwealth will be detrimental to the native fish and wildlife resources of Virginia:

    The following fish are considered native species, and cannot be taken or possessed...

    Beautiful Shiner
    Bluehead Sucker
    Bonytail Chub
    Colorado Pikeminnow
    Desert Pupfish
    Flannelmouth Sucker
    Gila Chub
    Gila Topminnow
    Gila Trout
    Headwater Chub
    Humpback Chub
    Little Colorado Sucker
    Little Colorado Spinedace
    Loach Minnow
    Mexican Stoneroller
    Quitobaquito Pupfish
    Razorback Sucker
    Sonora Chub
    Virgin Spinedace
    Virgin Roundtail Chub
    Yaqui Catfish
    Yaqui Chub
    Yaqui Topminnow
    Zuni Bluehead Sucker

    In addition, gamefish may not be possessed alive (that means no channel cats, or bullhead, or bluegill, etc.)

    There do not appear to be any laws about aquarium fish, other than the federal laws. I have found several areas that say aquarium and pond species are not regulated. However, that may be about to change, as they are working on the invasive species problem, and some species may end up banned over that.
