Illegal Fish Thread

thanks much!

and does anyone know why killifish would be on a banned list? I've seen them at several stores here, including a major chain once.
Killifish are banned in Utah to protect at risk populations of native killifish. The non native killies could cross breed with natives and the numbers of the natives are to low to risk that.


Both Tennessee and Georgia Banned keeping of any native fish from within the respective state without a permit, and those are generally limited to educational purposes.

I just think that it's dumb since some species like the rainbow snakehead can't survive the winter up here.

Snakeheads are legal here in Alberta. I used to have a giant snakehead in my 225. he grew from 2" - 6" in a month.
they won't survive the winter but for some reason they are illegal in eastern canada, probably because of how close the populated cities are with the US border, and the fact that they are illegal in USA.
