No it's mostly states that have adequate weather for them to survive in if released into the wild. Like I used to live in Minnesota and there are tons of lakes there but the reason they are allowed is because if released into the wild they wouldn't survive the winter. But they are illegal where I live now in Florida because if released they could survive because it's warm here all year.
