It depends on the country as every one has different rules. Many places it's difficult to do. I would say generally many fish get "lost in somebody's shoes" when they are packing. To do it legally is usually a pain in the butt (it takes a very long time) and usually requires import/export permits and a collecting permit. It also usually requires a university sponsorship from that country. Each country is different, but I know this is the case for Costa Rica and a few other countries.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

How does someone bring fish back from these places? what is involved? Like price, rules, and regulations?

My professors and a few graduate students went to Panama for research, particularly in the rainforest, but did do some research collecting fish.  Saw lots of tetra looking type fish, a couple wolf fish and some cichlids.  However, we weren't able to bring them home.

Got Green? What's your carbon footprint?
