Ask if the brood stock can come from other, out of state sources such as
aquarists or scientists.  I have anecdotal evidence that such stock may be
available.  In other words, I've heard mention of people keeping this
species in captivity.  Also, it may be possible to import brood stock from
another state.  Ask about that.

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.
