The Sep 2002 issue of Pet Product News has a snakehead on the cover and a
story called "Fish Fray" about the proposed US ban on importations. It
lists the states where snakeheads are illegal, discusses penalties under the
proposed new law, and features comments from an aquarium store owner who
regularly stocks 4 species and sells them through his website (he is opposed
to the ban on all species).

Also - there is a short item on the "bring'em back" policies of some
retailers who will take back and re-sell or display fish that have grown to
large for their opwner's tanks.

Most pet shop owners receive this publication.
