Bringing Fish into the United States

A golden-orange guppy

There are no CDC regulations regarding the importation of live fish. However, importers should visit the United States Fish and Wildlife Service for specific requirements on fish considered endangered or injurious species[PDF – 1 page]. Visit the United States Department of Agriculture for import restrictions on live fish, fertilized eggs and gametes susceptible to spring viremia of carp (SVC), an extremely contagious viral disease of carp. The National Marine Fisheries Service may also have regulations.
