Listing or requesting occasional fish here is certainly not forbidden.
However, I agree with Wright that we need to support the AKA's F&EL. It is
the tried and true method of advertising and finding fish and without
support from us could decline in volume. It is still the only mechanism of
exchange that is formally backed by the AKA code of ethics, as far as I
know, although admittedly many individuals (many of the AKA members) who
sell privately provide a similar personal code of ethics.
