There is a group of folks in Arizona who are investigating the possibility of changing the AZ Game and Fish regulations to allow the captive breeding of native species for commercial purposes in AZ and outside of AZ.

Presently it is illegal to do this.

They need each state's Game and Fish regulations/laws pertaining to this exercise to assist them in drafting their proposal.

Also, if anyone has any links or pdf's of papers that prove or disprove that captive breeding benefits conservation please send them too.

Thanks

Utah doesn't have any detailed information on breeding reptiles, they have more of a checklist that indicates possession, propagation and so forth:

I'm not the best guy to ask regarding breeding/commercialization of native species here in TX, because currently I don't do that. That being said, here are some of Texas' byzantine regulations and attempts at interpretation by TPWD officials who sometimes don't really understand what the statutes say (e.g. their FAQs can at times be misleading interpretations of the no-kidding Texas Parks and Wildlife Code).

Texas recently (well, past 10 years or so) divided up many species of herps and other animals into a "white list" and a "black list," with regulations regarding what you can do with "white list" species being more permissive than those for the "black list."

The somewhat confusing and contradictory "official" TPWD FAQ on white/black list species

White List Species

Black List Species

Rick Staub should be consulted on this, for sure. I'll let him know about this post.
