[Killietalk] International Shipments
Kho saved me a lot of typing; thanks.
Additonally once there are more than three specimens I believe or at least
one sexual pair the shipment is considered ³commercial²...fish, turtles,
snakes , whatever. Certain REGISTERED institutions are exempt the
Smithsonian for example isn¹t importing for commercial purposes despite the
sexes or quantities. Also, most if not all countries require an export
permit to accompany shipment from their wildlife authorities. If not
included or not valid...the shipment will not be cleared on this end.
Anything listed on the ESA is forbidden by dealers and hobbyists.
Anything on CITES appendices is another story and complicates matters but is
Eggs come under all this as well.
There are certain exemptions for museums, universities, gray areas etc with
prior arrangements being made.
I believe the farmed fish is only for carp and goldfish.The Florida Fish
Farmers has issued bulletins that there is no general exemption for farmed
fish as to document filing, fees etc.
There is also customs to be dealt with. Fishes are duty free but an entry
still must be filed. Outbound USFWS will alert customs to anything being
shipped to say Cuba, where we can¹t trade or anything ³funny² in the box.
don¹t shoot the messenger(s),
