I'm about to bag up some C. diminutus for the auction on Saturday, but came across this line on the DNR website:

"Live crayfish may not be sold for live bait or for use in aquariums."

Does anyone know if that refers only to MN-native crayfish, or to crayfish as a whole? I see CPO for sale pretty often but wouldn't want to introduce invasives.

From MN DNR website:

"The following information relates to the importation, possession, purchase, and sale of amphibians, reptiles, minnows, and crayfish.
...Crayfish Live crayfish may not be sold for bait use. Live crayfish that cannot survive in waters of the state may be sold for aquarium use. A permit issued by the DNR is required to import live crayfish or crayfish eggs into the state."
