I am interested in collecting data on any agencies in the U.S. that collect a fee for issuing collecting permits for terrestrial insects that are not protected or endangered. If so, how much do they charge? If you can please send me a value and link, I will collect the data and report back to the group.
California Department of Fish and Wildlife in now enforcing a scientific collecting permit ($420) for the collection of any terrestrial native insect (invertebrate), including those that are not protected (https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Licensing/Scientific-Collecting).
I am not interested in those agencies that issue permits but do not charge a fee (I know there are lots of those).
I would like to find out if there is anything similar to what CDFW is applying elsewhere.
Please respond to me individually.
