    Get your head on straight people. Yes its bad Ps get a bad name. NOOOOOOO its not bad to protect NATURE... you know nature? Where all our wet pets came from in the first place?

    I live in Fl and have personally seen peacock bass, oscars, and even goldfish just-a-swimin in our waterways...heck I have caught gibbiceps on a fishing line!

    So either get over it or start telling your buddies to quit dumping there pets in the creek...
    Not all species that are introduced are invasive. If the niche is unfilled, there is always the possibility for a transplant to enhance the local ecosystem. Now, more often than not introducing a new species does do some damage (anywhere from minor peripheral to disastrous), but it is just irresponsible and dishonest to leave the impression that any new species is the end of the natural world as we know it.

    Snakeheads are, by far, some of the most invasive species around; I know, I have caught them right here in a river near where I live. That said, if you check with the wildlife experts even the dreaded snakehead (which Maryland actually poisoned its own rivers in an attempt to get rid of) is simply a minor nuisance, and really hasn't had any world-shaking impact on the local wildlife.

    Now, I'm definitely not making a case for releasing captive exotics into the wild; quite the contrary. I just can't sit quietly while people develop a Salem-esque righteous fervor and provide a distorted perception of such an important issue.

    Being rational and dispassionately assessing the evidence will always get you the best answer available. This situation is no different.

    P's are only a problem if some idiot lets them loose which ruins it for everyone until recently most agressive cichlids were banned in south australia when they clearly cant survive the winter the problem is whoever makes these laws knows nothing about fish.

    You may very well belive in your heart that theres nothing at all wrong with torching off some herb or driving alone in the car pool lane....but it's STILL wrong and it will still get your fanny in a sling if you get caught....

    I agree, if you plan on being a business for all intensive purposes of making money then you should know as much as you can about it and not half @ss it.

    Looks like the guy got a $10,000 lesson in business ethics.

    Does anyone know what happened to him?

    I think that the crazy zeal developed by preserve-it-all whackjobs has many casualties, like Rocky the snakehead. He didn't even have the capacity to survive in the local waterways if he was released.

    all these rules blah blah blah i know they have to regulate the environment, but there should be a law where the general public has the ability to acquire a license to house an "illgegal fish" the government would make money off us. and im pretty sure a lot of people will jump to this.

    before you know it we wont be able to have "convicts" because they multiply like crazy...
    sucks i live in cali the state where fish tanks are cheap bt you cant have anything. just like owning a lamborghini can you really drive 150 mph all the time. nope!!!
