two have potential to damage the environment in CERTAIN places so lets ban all 29 species every where hmmmm

From a governmental stand point it is easier to control if ALL species are banned....

If anybody wants to know, snakeheads might get banned in Ontario Canada.
"Therefore, to protect Ontario's aquatic resources proactively using a precautionary approach, this amendment proposes to prohibit the possession of live specimens of the following species: grass carp, bighead carp, silver carp, black carp, snakehead, round goby and tubenose goby."

cheers col
I'm not sure, I haven't seen any for a long time. Last I saw any snakeheads was at the pet store I used to work at. We had one, it choked on a guppy and passed away. Thats the last time I ever saw one.

EDIT:
So yea, turns out they are banned in Ontario I just checked on the Ministry of Environment for Ontario and yea...bye bye snakeheads here.

So it IS legal to own snakeheads in MD? I'm just curious, as I might want to get one some day.
