Fish suppliers that ship products intended for stocking in Maryland waters must be approved in advance (and private purchasers must obtain a Pond Stocking Permit to stock the fish). The purpose of the registration is to define approved fish species, and requires a recent (less than 6 month old) health certificate for all species requested to assure key fish diseases are not introduced inadvertently. Stock source information may be considered in the approval process. Lists of approved fish and suppliers are available to the public following permit approval, and are valid during the calendar year of issuance.
