Default Catching Aquarium Fish

Does anyone know the rules/regs. on capturing fish for your aquarium. When I dive I see a lot of the same gobie, angel, damsil, etc. you see sold in the pet store for like $20-$80 or more. I have a salt water aquarium and would love to know if you are allowed to catch fish yourself. If so, what is the best techniques? Thanks!

Cool. Seems like if you aren't selling them you can catch almost anything with just a regular fishing licence. All the permits seem to be for commercial use only.

Make sure you don't keep anything that is regulated and undersized. They will fine you for that.

Yea, I was thinking of setting up a 10 gallon quarantine tank to make sure they don't have any weird disease. Thanks for the info. everyone. I'll probably have to get an identification guide, and print out the regulations and bring them with me to make sure no rules are broken.

I've done it and it cost me major money trying to get everything straight again.
Good luck
