If you are a Texas resident you need a permit to purchase Triploid Grass Carp. The permit is available through the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and takes approximately 4-5 weeks to obtain. We recommend requesting the largest number of fish allowed on the permit. You don’t have to purchase them all at once. Click here to begin the application process. If you are a Texas resident, by law we cannot sell you Grass Carp unless you have your permit.
As of 2021, the TPWD also requires permits to stock tilapia in some Texas counties. To check to see if you need a permit, and to apply, please use this link.
