    Not this simple, though. I agree if you are speaking LOCALLY. If the fish(es) do NOT belong to this place, they shouldn't be released. They ARE exotic, even being natives. Exotic to the local ecosystem. Here we find amazonian fishes like Cichlas, oscars, giant pacus, and even giant arapaimas outta the amazonas river basin. This can do SEVERE damage to the local ecosystem.

    Best regards.

    Fish keepers should be responsible for their own fish.

Even wild caught native fish can pick up non-native disease in your tank that you could be unleashing upon the native ecological system. A non-native introduction is even worse. Non-native species compete with native fish for food and habitat, eat native fish eggs, and even destroy habitat all together. Non-native species that have caused significant problems include many species of carp, zebra mussels, the round goby, the spiny water flea, and species of snakeheads just to name a few. The introduction of snakeheads to native waters has caused the ban of ALL species of Channa to be banned from the United States. These beautiful monsters are no longer allowed to be kept in aquariums. There is also a sustained population of goldfish in the mississippi river and although they don't cause much of a problem, they give DNR officials ammo in trying to ban more species of fish that you and I keep. NEVER RELEASE YOUR FISH OR INVERTEBRATES INTO THE WILD. I hate to say it but euthanizing your fish is actually a better option than letting them go. I choose neither. If there is a fish I absolutely cannot keep anymore, I sell it or give it to another fish keeper that will provide a good home. I hope you will do the same.
    Amen. As well I wouldn't just apply this to fish, I'd apply it to all animals.

    I wish there was a way to get this message across to more people so we don't have problems with invasive species.

    You know this topic would come up amongst my family in Michigan (all outdoorsman who fish) and my grandmother (full blooded Ottawa) she'd look at all of us in a funny way and say "Yep".

    For most of us it is. But that doesn't explain the goldfish population in the Mississippi river, or the snakehead populations in varying bodies of water.
