Only certain nerite snails can be acclimated to freshwater, go to LiveAquaria.com and check under the freshwater inverts section and you'll find nerite snails under there that can live in freshwater.

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.
