Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level.

      a. Aquaculture facilities which do not hold diploid grass carp and which have been
      designated by the Dept. of Agriculture on their aquaculture permits for grass carp as
      "triploid grass carp only" facilities may hold triploid grass carp over from year to year
      and release these fish in triploid waters. The triploidy certificate will be accepted for
      the lot until all fish have been released.
      b. The triploid certificate for triploid grass carp held in aquaculture facilities which hold
      both diploid and triploid fish will be accepted until the end of the calendar year. If
      stocked after that date, the fish must be stocked as diploid grass carp. Triploid grass
      carp acquired after January 1 of each year must have a new triploidy certificate for
      each lot of fish.
      c. Diploid grass carp can only be held in facilities on the east slope. If triploid grass carp
      are held in the same aquaculture facility prior to release, they must be held in
      containers separate and distinct from those holding diploid grass carp. When diploid
      and triploid grass carp are held in separate cages in the same raceway, any fish
      which escapes from a cage will be considered a diploid.
      d. Diploid grass carp may be transported through the west slope (west of the Continental
      Divide and in the Rio Grande Basin) only when the destination is on the eastern slope
      or in another state.
      2. Diploid or triploid grass carp may be released into standing water or irrigation ditches east
      of the Continental Divide, except in the Rio Grande Basin.
      3. West of the Continental Divide and in the Rio Grande Basin:
      a. Only certified triploid grass carp may be released into standing waters and must be at
      least eight inches in length at the time they are released.
      b. Such waters must be screened prior to stocking to prevent escape of fish. All screens
      shall be maintained so as to prevent such escape, and at least one measurement of
      the gap size shall not exceed one & one-quarter (1 1/4) inch. All such screens may be
      inspected on an annual basis by the Division or its designated representative.
      c. The stocking location of all grass carp released in the above waters must be reported
      to the Division, on forms provided by the Division, within thirty (30) days of release.
      d. Grass carp to be held in aquaculture facilities west of the Continental Divide and in
      the Rio Grande Basin must be a minimum of 8" in length at the time they are placed in
      the facility. Any undersized fish that are inadvertently present in a shipment must be
      removed or handled in a manner to ensure that such fish cannot escape from the
      facility.
      F. Upper Colorado River Basin
      1. Within the Upper Colorado River Basin, and except as provided herein, no person shall
      release any species or subspecies of fish below 6500 feet in elevation which did not
      originate naturally, either presently or historically, in Colorado.
      24
      a. Channel catfish and fathead minnow may be released into ponds, lakes and
      reservoirs below 6500' in elevation, except in critical habitat, provided the receiving
      water is isolated or its outlet(s) are screened prior to stocking to prevent escape of
      fish or their progeny.
      b. Mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) may be released into ponds, lake and reservoirs
      below 6500' in elevation but above the 50 year floodplain of those river reaches
      defined as critical habitat, provided the receiving water is isolated, or its outlet(s) are
      screened prior to stocking to prevent escape of fish or their progeny.
      c. Certified triploid grass carp at least 8 inches in length, bluegill, black crappie, and
      largemouth bass may be released into ponds, lake and reservoirs below 6500' in
      elevation, including waters located within the 50 year floodplain of those river reaches
      defined as critical habitat, provided the receiving water is isolated or its outlet (s) are
      screened prior to stocking to prevent the escape of fish or their progeny. Provided
      further, that all ponds, lakes or reservoirs within the 50 year floodplain must have an
      existing, modified or constructed dike meeting standards sufficient to resist at least
      the 50 year flood. Minimum dike standards include the following:
      1. The dike must be designed and constructed in accordance with recognized and
      accepted engineering practices;
      2. The dike must be capable of withstanding the hydrodynamic and hydrostatic
      forces, and the effects of buoyancy associated with a 50 year flood.
      3. The dike must be five feet above the ordinary high water line (OHWL).
      All dikes must be certified in writing as meeting these standards by a qualified
      engineer, prior to stocking. The report shall be submitted to the Division of
      Wildlife and shall include a consideration of depth and duration of flooding,
      floodplain elevation, dike geometry, dike and foundation materials, dike
      compaction, penetrations, and other factors affecting penetrations, localized river
      channel constrictions and conditions, and any other factors that may affect the
      ability of the dike to withstand flood events.
      2. Salmonids may be released within the Upper Colorado River Basin except in those river
      reaches defined as critical habitat.
      3. Smallmouth bass, northern pike (Esox lucius), and tiger muskie (Esox lucius X Esox
      masquinongy) may be released except in critical habitat, within the Upper Colorado River
      Basin, and then only if:
      a. The fish are acquired within the basin from an existing population below 6500' in
      elevation; and
      b. The receiving water already contains the species and is isolated or its outlets are
      screened to prevent the escape of the fish or their progeny.
      All such relocations of fish must be authorized in advance and in writing by the Division.
      4. All ponds, lakes or reservoirs within the Upper Colorado River Basin which require, or rely
      upon, dikes or screens to prevent the escape of stocked fish and their progeny will be
      inspected on an annual basis by the Division or its designated representative. All dikes
      and screens shall be maintained to prevent the escape of fish and their progeny.
      Whenever screens are required, at least one measurement of the gap size shall not
      exceed one-quarter (1/4) inch.
      25
      G. Release of aquatic wildlife must comply with all applicable regulations including but not limited
      to the restrictions in #011, #012, and #014 of these regulations.

      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)
      American water lotus (Nelumbo lutea)
      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.
