Part 575 Prohibited and Regulated Species

These regulations are to help control invasive species by reducing the introduction and spread of them by limiting commerce in such species. By preventing introduction of new invasive species, New York will save time, effort, and money in the future. The lists of prohibited and regulated species were developed using the species assessment and listing process outlined in the 2010 report, “Regulatory System for Non-Native Species.”
