MICHIGAN:

In 2005, Michigan established several invasive species laws, creating lists of restricted and prohibited species, rules of possession, penalties for intentional introduction and releases, and a permit program. The new laws also established an Invasive Species Advisory Council, including the directors of the Departments of Natural Resources, Environmental Quality and Agriculture. The Council is responsible for reviewing and updating these lists as well as several other duties. The lists and rules of possession are included at the end of this section and can also be found on the Internet at http://www.legislature.mi.gov/docume...05-PA-0077.pdf. The DNR is responsible for enforcement for plants and animals. The Department of Agriculture is responsible for enforcement related to insects. Michigan?s rules of possession and penalties apply to those who intentionally or knowingly introduce a prohibited or restricted species. To view the description of penalties, visit http://www.legislature.mi.gov/docume...05-PA-0076.pdf.
Michigan also has laws and rules pertaining to aquatic plant control. A permit from the Department of Environmental Quality is required for the application of chemicals to any plant that is growing in standing water at the time of the application. Manual removal of Eurasian water milfoil, curly leaf pondweed, purple loosestrife or other invasive aquatic plants does not require a permit. In addition, anyone cutting plants of any species must remove them. A permit is also not required for the use of biological control such as Eurasian water-milfoil weevils.

Michigan Aquatic Invasive Species Laws

Michigan Public Acts 70-74 of 2005 define the following as prohibited and restricted aquatic fish and plant species and describe the rules of possession:

NEBRASKA:

Nebraska Game & Parks Commission

All species of snakeheads are illegal to possess in Nebraska. Currently that is the only species that is prohibited for aquariums in Nebraska. Nebraska does have laws pertaining to removing fish from the wild for use in aquariums, primarily in relation to permiting and size restriction. Also in regard to any species of concern.

The primary concern for us is the release of any fish from aquariums into the waters of the state. This practice is illegal in Nebraska. Written authorization is required for any release of fish into the water of the state.
