    That's the thing. If they are hitch hikers, they have huge potential for being introduced into the natural system by mistake.
    Would possibly out-compete the natural species present in these bodies of water.

    I would love to know. Out-competing, not so sure, we have some bad-ass FW crustaceans, especially crabs :D

    Yes it is a step forward.
    Now I understand better why you were so close for the international sharing.


    Unfortunately, you have suffered the worst of solution that can take a government about our passion.


    Is it possible to get a list of authorized fish (white list), thank you

    Define "keeping shrimp" I have a tank with Caridina nilotica. I found them in our farm dams and the river flowing past the dams. So I thought that seeing that I'm already in trouble with the law for "keeping" them in the dams and river I might as well keep a few in a tank In my man cave.:tongue:

    Hi Guys , I know that Shrimp are Blacklisted , what about Freshwater Crayfish.I have seen them sold at a local shop in Durban , the owners attitude stinks so I was thinking of reporting him to the local auth.

    Any number please.

    According to the new lists, it's only the Blue Crayfish from what I remember. And maybe one or two lame species

    @twincam16 yes crayfish are blacklisted because they are very invasive so should stay that way.

    Hello all,

    Is there an updated black list or is this list still current?

    Regards

    Crustaceans and amphibians are going to have a blanket ban on them for some time to come, for various reasons. Is there something specific you had in mind? Given limited resources, I think it is easier (and responsible) to follow blanket bans on such groups. It is frustrating, but we can't put our ecologies even more at risk for the sake of a few itchy hobbyists. First things first.

    One of the reasons these groups are blanket banned, is because the parasites and pathogens they carry can infect indigenous species. It is the reason why virtually all central American amphibians are being wiped out, one species after another, by a fungus carried into the Americas by Xenopus (Cape clawed toads, or platannas as we know them) used in pregnancy testing. Even though the Xenopus haven't spread much, the pathogen has been a completely different story, and is one of the major ecological disasters of the twentieth century. So one should not be so myopic and say because a particular shrimp or cray or snail or frog can't survive our winters outside, it should be fine here. It is a LOT more complicated than that, and the responsible approach is prevention, rather than the fight against time and limited resources to find cures for preventable problems.

    I found this list in another thread...
    Freshwater Fish Blacklist
    Is it still current, or have any changes been made?
    Where can I find out if it is still current?

    I see there is a lot of interest in RCS and other shrimp.
    Are they still banned?

    Nature Conservation website doesn't have any information.
