Anyone wishing to import a species that has not yet been classified can petition for that species to be classified. The classification review committee will review the petition and make recommendations to the Commission on the species classification. The species are then classified in the Administrative Rule. The process typically takes around 6 months.
To petition for classification of an exotic species for importation into Montana, complete the petition form and submit it to:
