This is of EXTREME importance to the pet industry that this proposed bill does NOT pass. I did not see a post about this here, and I know that right away this bill was thought to be only a threat to the reptile industry, but as the details have come out this is not the case. HR669 proposes a BAN on ALL non-native US wildlife, this INCLUDES fish. This means it would be ILLEGAL to own, reproduce, or travel across state lines with non-native wildlife including fish.

Here is the full text of the proposed bill:

I just thought that I should make this known to this online community. We need to send letters, emails, and phone calls before April 23rd when the house sub-committee is meeting.

Don't let them ban our hobbies and pets. Do your part!
