    Default Transporting live fish across the border.

    I am considering bringing some live Cyprichromis across the border from Buffalo and am wondering if there are any legal problems with this. The order would be worth 3 to 4 hundred dollars and I know I would have to pay duty but are there any special permits etc. that I would need ?

    Ed. Jeff and I brought back a lot of fish after last years OCA in Cleaveland. The Canadian customs guard pressed us hard for paperwork. what he was looking for was evidence of value - to validate our claim on what we paid for them. It was only a problem because we had bought them privately or at auction and didn't have any record of sale. Eventually, he let us through. As Terry says, be sure to say they they are ornamental tropical fish for personal use only.
