List of fish prohibited for import, commerce and possession in Israel.
Species not included on the Black List are permitted for import, after a permit is issued by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority.
Note the comments at the end of the Black List, which are an inseparable part of it!
- You must first obtain a permit for commerce through the permits portal to register as an authorized importer by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority.
- Along with obtaining the permit for commerce, you must email a typed application to email@example.com. Attached is the import application permit. There is no need to fill in the names of the species: write only “fish.”
- Assessment and issuing of the permit will take up to 30 days.
- An import permit for fish does not require payment of a fee
- An import permit for fish may be used multiple times and is valid for six months. You may import from all permitted countries with no limitations on quantities.
- After you receive your import permit, contact the Fishing Department of the Ministry of Agriculture to determine whether an additional permit is needed: firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Forty-eight hours before the shipment arrives, you must inform the INPA’s representative by email or text of the flight details of the shipment. Contact information appears on the permit.
- After the shipment arrives or the permit expires you must report to the permits department on the quantities that were actually imported (and also report non-use of the permit).
