<<Well, there are a couple of really big problems involved in raising
awareness about the hazards of introducing exotics ( and captive
natives )
into local waters that so far none of you have mentioned, so I will.>>

That actually makes a lot of sense.....very sad and disheartening, but yeah, I didn't think of it that way. Thanks for explaining. I guess it just comes down to the same thing a lot of other issues I've gotten into boil down to....the thing that needs to be controlled is ignorance, but sadly that is not possible.
