A minnow dealer must obtain an exporting minnow dealer license to transport minnows (taken under their minnow dealer license) out of the state. Leeches are considered and defined as minnows. Vehicles being used to export minnows out of state are required to be licensed as Exporting Minnow Dealer Vehicles

Non-residents who purchase minnows from licensed minnow dealers for export must obtain Non-resident Minnow Hauler and Non-resident Minnow Hauler Vehicle Licenses.

License issued to individuals only.
