Re: NFC: Fundulus Chysotus Sellers needed.

I think I can add one more scope this issue. Being a mud stomping member of
the Exotic Removal (group? team?..??).
http://www.nativefish.org/ERP/index.html There needs to be a way of getting
rid of the small exotics, some are sold to dealers (some in the area and
some outside) and some are given for research and still a lot are eaten, (
Yes we'll eat a placo). FL laws are pretty right to the point any monies
that pass on a fish or plant you need to have a lic. or permit to do so. It
does not say that you need to make 30 or 20 percent of your income to be
into needing a  sales lic., it says any monies.  It's not like if I make 30
percent of my income from selling photos or get award monies for them I fall
in as a professional artist.  JiM C.

PS,  When are you all coming to South-Central FL for a day of cooking Placo
and Tilapia, (yes we have to go get them first),  Or does the name S-C scare
you Northern FL people away? JC
