Agree to disagree ..... with all due respect. A blacklist accomplishes the same thing. A whitelist theoretically bans imports of new species forever as the government will never spend a minute or a dime in risk assessment studying some obscure catfish. This legislation is written by those in power who don't believe animals should be kept in any form other than their native habitat which unfortunately for the hobby means thousands of species will be allowed to become extinct as their native habitats are being destroyed around the world. They obviously don't give a rip about people crossing the border and setting up camp and breeding with no restrictions as it is happening every day in spite of current legislation to the contrary.
