     Our auctions vary between 1200 and 1500 bags of fish.
They start at 11:00 A.M.and go
until all items are sold. The exotics that you could provide
would strictly be for aquarium use.
I talked to a pet shop owner and he is interested in the
exotics that you might have. He said that he orders fish
from Florida fish farms occasionally and doesn't need a
permit to receive them. I am also waiting on a call back
from the lady that runs the nongame fish department about
some of the laws. I will also talk to another shop owner and
see if he is interestedin any of the fish. A word of WARNING
these shop owners will be comparing your prices with their
whole sale prices.  I believe that is all for now, but it
doesn't seem to be a problem shipping fish into the state
