    CITES species

    Hello! Due to my proximity to the border and the lack of LFS in my area on this side of the border I often cross to the US to purchase items I need for our hobby. I prefer to support Canadian businesses and I agree we have some good ones including alot of our sponsors. BUT.. because of a recent purchases and inquiry's I've made into items I am looking at purchasing some questions have arose in regards to bring fish/ rock/ corals across the border. Here is a list of CITES fish and invertebrates which you require a permit to bring in/ out of Canada.
