DiscoDJ: Another Government Employee: Florida understands (Google Eledia).OK. I fell for it. I googled it. Even added "Florida" when the first result turned up bupkis. Still bupkis.Great post there, Lou.
roc6783: tricycleracer: I had a friend in med school down at NSU who would buy illegal coral in Miami. He says it had about the same feel as buying drugs.Why would you buy illegal coral? Not snark, it just seems really stupid when you can get it from places that legally produce it.Also, I tried to figure out if gobies in Lake Michigan are invasive or not. Turns out it is a firm "Maybe". Bigger fish eat them, but the gobies target the eggs of larger fish, so they are a problem, but not out of control yet. Weird lookin suckers though, remind me of the mudskipper from Ren and Stimpy.[2.bp.blogspot.com image 850x637]
medieval: I like how they waited till the last bit to mention that she'd been warned by officials about importing AND THEN SELLING the moss balls, but kept doing it anyway.To hell with her.

destrip: I just remembered another biggie: the tui chub, an invasive fish species that is so damaging to the lakes it infests that the only viable option to get rid of it is to poison THE ENTIRE LAKE. This was famously done in Diamond Lake in Oregon.
