Can snakeheads still be purchased for food purposes?

Dead snakeheads--on ice or frozen--can be imported for food purposes to any state except those where importation or possession of dead snakeheads is illegal. Live snakeheads of one species being cultured in Hawaii, but not exported to the mainland of the U.S., are available in one market in Honolulu. Hawaii regulations require that all fish must be killed and their gills removed before the purchaser leaves the store.
