Well, I would not want to believe so either. But dwarf tropical channids
were banned along with the big cold tolerant ones, because " people are not
smart enough to tell them apart, and besides, who needs these things
anyways". That could be applied on down the line. The fish farm people were
worried enough about the wording to mention this, that is the reason I
passed it on. They are worried, its not that much further that what we do
maybe we should be thinking about it as well. That is all. Not trying to
stir the pot, just spread what I thought might be cause for concern, and
maybe something to watch out for in the future.
