I think the bottom line is, it's illegal. I have watched introduced
plant, animal, etc.. into Australia. Even though your request seems
genuine, the law is the law.
As for other comments on California, I think every state has a problem
in some way or another. As for here, gas prices are high, taxes are
high, freeways are congested and yes Michael F. it's a free for all on
What I'd like to see is the bullshit about dredging for gold in
California shoved up some political hierarchy's arse. Dredging is good
for the environment, the fish love it. You stir up all that good food.
But try to tell that to the politicians. That's all I've got to say
on this post.
