Re: blueheads

Unless someone out there has the facilities for a full scale commercial
fish propagation project, this may have to happen on a smaller more diffuse
level.  Perhaps one way to start would be to distribute fish to parties
interested in reproducing and maintaining them in captivity on a hobbyist
level of time and resource commitment.  Then as broods are matured to
transferable size, they could be sold locally or centrally with NFC
coordination.  Also stock should be exchanged between breeders to maintain
genetic diversity.  The brood stock provider and each breeder would be
responsible for ensuring that their piece of the operation complies with
their state's regulations.

Maybe someone out there can enlighten us on the intricacies of interstate
regulations regarding native fishes.  Does a regulation that governs the
disposition of a fish from one state remain in effect if that fish now
resides in another state?  Does the first state have any enforcement power
in the second state?

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him
to use "the Net" and he won't bother you for weeks.
