The state can only really determine how you take animals raised using _their
resources_. If you have legally obtained adults that spawn using your
resources, the offspring are yours and do not consitute a bag or anything.
Some states take an additional step with this, with an aquaculture permit
(probably so they're aware of your activities and can generate some
additional revenues), and that will vary state by state. I know Mr. Binkley
has done some serious research on this, maybe he'll have time to offer some
additional thoughts :)
