Not that I want to do this, but one of the people coming with us want to bring some fish home. I did not think this was a problem, but no sense bringing a cooler down if someone's going to give us a hassle when we leave or when we get to Miami.

Anyone have any experience with this?

Two weeks and counting and we're there!!!

US Fish & Wildlife as well as Customs regulations are quite restrictive & complicated. You should check with USF&W Service for specifics. At once time, and I think it still true that, only at specific ports of entry was/is it possible, once all the I's were dotted and T's crossed.

I'd expect a hassle. wink

I think US Customs might be an issue. They don't think too highly of parasites being introduced into the country. I know someone that tried it in California from Mexico. The state laws are different, so you have to check with not only US Customs, but the port of entry state's Fish and Game Commission. My buddy had no problem bringing it back to California since the rules were followed for that state i.e. fish head and tail intact so it can be identified, and he had to fill out separate paperwork. It may not be worth the hassle.

Just got back last week, and I know one of the guys in our group was taking fish home. As a matter of fact,he was saying that he does so each year. Sorry but I did not get the details, but it does sound possible as I have heard of others doing so in past years. Better check with customs to be safe. Good fishing! TIMO

There is no problem bring frozen fish into the US. Belize requires a permit that you must obtain prior to leaving Belize with fish or any other seafood. Your hotel should be able to assist you in getting the permit. It is not a big problem.
