I'm sure it's to avoid invasive species. I bet it's just easier to ban all snails and shrimp than to target specific species that have caused/can cause problems. I know African clawed frogs are illegal in a handful of places in the US too, as they are extremely invasive and out-compete native species, as well as transmitting a fungus that is killing off many of the world's amphibians.

That said, I know nothing about Maine and what their goals are specifically when it comes to the FW snail ban. But I wouldn't immediately assume it's silly or for no good reason. Just a quick google search revealed a list of invasive species in Maine-- the third one down is a snail (though not an ornamental one).

it's silly because you can't even have a native species of snail. we have them here, but you can't use the ones already here. also, maine has a list of what is allowed not what isn't. i can understand ones that are invasive or something like that, but only a handful of things are allowed here compared to what isn't.
