i don't think they are legal to own anywhere in the US. i saw a show about them on TV, and it said that they are illegal to own because too many people release them into the wild and they make a great decline in native fish populations.

currently they are illegal in 13 states and there is a breeding population in NY, so i am guessing New York is now part of the illegal list.
