The only thing I’ve ever taken from nature is a 3” blue crab which I “caught” while fishing for catfish out of my back yard. They are brackish and native to VA. I had a 100 gal cichlid tank set up with mature 7+” fish and after QT the crab he lived in my tank for 4 years till I moved and let him go in the river behind my house again.

About the only reason I did it was because I’ve always wanted one and because it’s not something the lfs carries

Besides shells as Jermz79 said I’d much rather trust the stock from my lfs then what I’d find at the beach. Plus most of the stock that is pulled from the ocean is in much more nutrient free/cleaner waters then what FL has.

While you are at it you can stop in the Everglades and pick out some rare and endangered orchids...

i live in miami but my parents live in the Keys, Islamorada in fact. and there are many zoo's and ricordea's in my "backyard". with a recreational fishing license you can harvest (to a limit) quite a few things. no stony corals, no Gorgonia ventalina or Gorgonia flabellum, no more than 6 octocorals per day, but other than that there is a lot you can collect with a recreational fishing license. and yes you can collect hermits there are tonns of the blue legged hermits in my parents beach.

heres a link to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on what you can/cant take.

What are the laws exactly. People go to the beach in NJ all the tiem and collect things like shells and rocks. Nobody ever seems to get in trouble for that. But I bet if you when up with a 5 gallon bucket and filled it with sand they woudl have an issue.

Where do you draw the line?

Tito: You could go to the beach and get hermits etc and you will probably never hear a thing about it. It is when you have the truck backed up with coolers and buckets and are collecting buckets full that you will get in trouble. Pearsont said he/she had done it and they do not last long. If you do it I would do a really loooooooong acclimation and QT them for around 8 weeks just to be safe.
