Hello Casper,
collected in May in TN together with a friend. We had with us 10 pairs
of redbelly dace, 10 pairs of rainbow shiner and 20 pairs of Yellowfin
shiners. Even I had an actual fishing license, an export license and the
necessary paper work for USFWS these fish have been confiscated-in-the
USFWS office-in-Atlanta airport, after we told them that they originated
from TN.
Unfortunately it seems collecting, even in small numbers, will be more
and more difficult in the near future.
