Temperate Livestock Group Buy Feeler

Post by jared on October 4th 2010, 4:18 pm

Hi all,

I'd like to gauge interest in a temperate livestock group buy. I don't have a confirmed source yet, but I'm working on it. If I can get a confirmed source then I will get a list of available livestock and prices then start taking orders and payment (PayPal), then have it all shipped to myself in San Diego, and ship individual orders to the buyers.

So, I got a message from the supplier asking if I have a scientific collecting permit from CADFG. This does not bode well.

Someone on here does. I'm sure of it. Possibly they could do the buy.

So, apparently only certain species require the scientific collection permit, while other species do not. I should have a list with quotes soon. Puffer: YGPM.

OK, I can buy Pink Seastars for $10 each, Bat Stars for $5.50 each, and Purple Urchins for $4 each. I can also use my sport fishing license to legally collect and give away mussels, snails, limpets, crabs, and macroalgae. Shipping method is up to you, shipping costs will be figured out on a case-by-case basis. I'm not making money out of this, just hoping to help out fellow hobbyists. Please send me a PM if you're interested.

WARNING: LIVE ARRIVAL NOT GUARANTEED!

I won't be able to ship stuff out until the end of October.

If I publish the name then people will start contacting them directly. That would probably not be a good thing for the hobby since they don't cater to hobbyists. On the other hand, if one of us arranges group buys then I think we're more likely to be able to develop an ongoing relationship with them...

I have no info about colors. Bat stars can be orange, red, purple, brown, gray, yellow, or green. Orange and red seem to be quite common. I can try to request a specific color, but I guess it will just be whatever is in stock.
