I appreciate the question, and for snakeheads, it's an interesting case study. You cannot import snakeheads into the United States. They have a federal law that prohibits import. We are importing them into British Columbia.
Dr. Mandrak and I have seen them for sale in markets in British Columbia, and we have bought one live and taken it to the hotel. We knew it was going to be a matter of time before it showed up in the wild, and it did.
I couldn't agree more. We do need regulations in order to prohibit only our highest-risk species. We wouldn't need to prohibit everything, only the highest-risk species for import, and DFO is developing regulations in order to be able to do that.
