    Fish smuggling

    In light of our various discussions about CITES, etc. folks might be interested in this BBC article about a women arresting for trying to smuggle fish into Australia: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4613985.stm

    The funny thing is they look like plecos. Of all the fish to smuggle why bother with plecos?

    Cheers!

    I think Australia has very restrictive conservation laws which makes it hard to get even fish local the GBR.
