Default re: SWEEPING BAN on salamander trade/transportation in effect this month

It will limit many interstate sales and nearly stop imports.
As the proposal stands their is no exemption for chytrid free certification. The proposal states that tests are not reliable. Even if they would consider them to be reliable it would be cost prohibitive. When I tested my collection it took me nearly a day. I had about 2000.00 worth of tests done at the going rate of 15.00 per test for free as part of a research project. I did the swabbing myself. Sending in swabs and not having a professional do take the samples would be of no value.
