The statutes only contain the original list, whereas the regulations also include all species added by the Commission.)

    CONNECTICUT:

    In Connecticut, a permit from the Department of Environmental Protection is
    required for the importation into the state of any live fish or live fish eggs,
    except for common aquarium species. Here's the text of the regulations
    concerning common aquarium species (note that the importation or possession of
    piranha and walking catfish is prohibited):

    Section 26-55-1(h) of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies (RCSA):
    (h) No permit shall be required to import, live common aquarium species. The
    importation or possession of piranha of the subfamily: Serrasalminae, genera
    Serrasalmus, Serrasalmo, Pygocentrus, Teddyella, Rooseveltiella, and Pygopristus
    and walking catfish of the family Clariidae, genera Clarias, Heteropneustes,
    Dinotoplerus and Heterobranchus is prohibited except that the Commissioner may
    at his discretion issue permits for the importation and possession, when it is
    in the public interest, for public display purposes, of single specimens of
    piranha and walking catfish. Such possession permits shall be issued for a
    calendar year and the applicant must request renewal of said permit prior to
    December thirty-first of the year said permit is in effect. Renewal of said
    permit shall be at the discretion of the Commissioner. Such permittee shall
    report annually to the Commissioner during the month of December on the status
    and health of the specimen for which said permit is issued, except that in the
    case of death of said specimen the permittee shall report same to the
    Commissioner within seven days.

    Possesion or importation of a number of species (and groups of species) is
    prohibited, below is the current list of prohibited fish (text from Sec.
    26-55-1(i) of the RCSA):

    (i) Live fish or live fish eggs of the following species, genera or families may
    not be imported in to the state or possessed:
    (1) Bowfin (Amia calva);
    (2) Gars (Lepisosteidae spp.);
    (3) Gizzard shad (Dorosoma cepedianum)
    (4) White bass (Morone chrysops),
    (5) Freshwater drum (Aplodinotus grunniens);
    (6) Snail carp or Black carp (Mylopharyngodon piceus);
    (7) Silver carp (Hypophthalmicthys molitrix);
    (8) Big Head carp (Aristichthys nobilis);
    (9) Tench (Tinca tinca);
    (10) Rohu (Labeo rohita);
    (11) Calbasu (Labeo calbasa)
    (12) Catla (Catla catla);
    (13) Mrigal (Cirrhina mrigala);
    (14) Mahseer (Tor tor);
    (15) Crucian carp (Carassius carassius);
    (16) Rudd (Scardinius erythrophthalmus);
    (17) European whitefish, Orfe or Ide (Leuciscus idus);
    (18) Any species of fish whose importation into the United States is prohibited;
    (19) Any species of fish designated rare, threatened or endangered;
    (20) Any species of fish which the Commissioner determines is potentially
    dangerous to humans, established species of fish or established aquatic plants;
    (21) Snakehead (including all members of the genus Channa and Parachanna or
    their generic synonyms of Bostrychoides, Ophicephalus, Ophiocephalus, and
    Parophiocephalus).

    Also, this past summer, the importation and/or possession of live fish or live
    eggs of all forms of sturgeon (family Acipenseridae) including "sterlet" was
    prohibited. It was determined that a potential threat to Atlantic sturgeon and
    the federally endangered shortnose sturgeon existed due to competition,
    hybridization and disease transmission should other sturgeon be introduced to
    Connecticut waters.

    Please note that the introduction/liberation/stocking of any species of fish
    into CT waters is also prohibited without a permit from the Department of
    Environmental Protection (DEP) and that the use of, or sale of common carp
    (Cyprinus carpio) and goldfish for use as bait is also prohibited.

    Also, there
    are a number of aquatic plants (some of which may be popular in the aquarium and
    water garden trades) whose possession, transportation, sale, cultivation and/or
    distribution is currently prohibited in Connecticut:
    Curly leaved pondweed (Potamogeton crispus)
    Fanwort (Cabomba caroliniana)
    Eurasian water-milfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum)
    Variable water milfoil (Myriophyllum heterophyllum)
    Parrotfeather (Myriophyllum aquaticum)
    Water chestnut (Trapa natans)
    Egeria (Egeria densa), also called "Brazilian elodea".
    Hydrilla (Hydrilla verticillata)
    Common reed (Phragmites australis)
    Purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria)
    Pond water-starwort (Callitriche stagnalis)
    Brittle water-nymph (Najas minor)

    Yellow floating heart (Nymphoides peltata)
    Giant salvinia (Salvinia molesta)
    Yellow iris (Iris pseudacorus)
    Water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes)
    Onerow yellowcress (Rorippa microphylla)
    Watercress (Rorippa nasturium-aquatticum-*except for watercress without
    reproductive structures sold for human consumption

    To protect and conserve Florida's natural aquatic resources and help ensure public safety, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) prohibits (see Prohibited fishes) or restricts (see list above) certain non-native fishes and aquatic fauna. Moreover, no person shall allow or permit any freshwater aquatic organism not native to the state to remain in the waters of any pond which is not maintained or operated for the production of such non-native species.

    The FWC uses well-defined criteria to determine where a species should appear on the list. The most current list is available by checking the statutes (See 68A-23.008). Species that were included on the list as of July 2003 are described on this page. In general, prohibited non-native aquatic species, listed in red in the link box above, may not be imported, sold, possessed or transported in Florida. Very limited exceptions are made by permit for viewing at large public aquaria or for research, provided Commission-approved maximum security requirements are met. No exceptions are made for certain prohibited species, such as piranha. Research permits for prohibited aquatic species are also very stringent.
    Restricted non-native aquatic species, listed in brown in the link box above, may only be possessed under permit from the executive director. Prior to the issuance of such permit, the facilities where the restricted aquatic species are to be kept and waters where their use is intended may be inspected by Commission personnel to assure that adequate safeguards exist to prevent escape or accidental release into the waters of the state.
    Note that much of the information on this page was taken from Fish base and "Living Fishes of the World," by Herald, or from the "Identification Guide to the Restricted and Prohibited Exotic Fishes," which was edited by Lt. Tom Quinn for FWC.

Such water body shall have no water discharge or shall be constructed with a barrier system designed to prevent escape of adults, juveniles, and eggs in the water effluent discharged from the permittee’s property. Public visitation at facilities in possession of conditional non-native species shall occur only under supervision of the permittee or his/her designee.
    2. Conditional freshwater fish and aquatic invertebrate species held indoors may only be held in culture systems having no water discharge, having a water discharge through a closed drain system, or other system designed to prevent discharge of water containing adults, juveniles and eggs from the permittee’s property.
