    thread has been down for some time, but quick question.

    what would happen if you got caught with bl species? is it illegal to keep? or to sell?

    just curios, want to know how far I should stay away.

    Yes, illegal to keep, illegal to sell, that includes giving it away, donating it etc, etc. by default all endemic species are "blacklisted" and you would need permits to keep them. Goes for platana through to cycads.

    Hello Every one.

    This Black Listed species is quite something. Who knows about the Shrimp going around SA at the moment, the Red Cherries and the Ghost / Glass Shrimp...

    Are these Illegal to sell and trade as well, or literally ALL shrimp are a no no.?

    Also is there any updated info regarding the shrimp species and the Black Lists?

    Any info would be hugely appreciated.

    With regards to shrimp = At this point, it's still a grey area as no one (not even Nat.Conservation can give a straight forward answer). Seems that they are legal to keep, legal to trade, but illegal to import (which is what's confusing matters...because if they are illegal to import...how can they be legal to keep or trade as they had to come from somewhere abroad)

    Thankfully an environmental assessment will be done by DAFF this year, which will clarify the import legality once and for all

    Brilliant, I feel a bit safer knowing this.

    Bummer about import, though as you mention an re environmental will be done this year, is there any way to know about this or follow it ?

    Thank you for your response

    An Import ban is sometimes because a species can carry a disease or that similar looking varieties are a threat and therefore banned not to by accident import the illegal species.
    For example...It is legal to keep, breed and sell rabbits in RSA but illegal to import since 1983 because of various diseases carried by especially european rabbits that is a threat to our riverine rabbit and other indigenous species.

    I'm not certain, but I believe that certain types of plecos are blacklisted, while others aren't.
    Gibbiceps are basically Leopard Plecostomus, yet are freely available.
    Ancistrus are Bristlenos Plecostomus, yet they are not blacklisted.
