Can you keep and transport native fish from one waterway to another?

Haha i am guessing it is.  i just dont see the problem with taking lets say a bass from one place in pa and bringing it to another place in pa.  if they are native fish, what is the harm of moving them around the area?

The issue is more about non-native fish being introduced that way.  Sometimes something as seemingly insignificant as a mussel species larva in the water used to transport the fish, causes major issues.

Eg: Zebra Mussel in the Great Lakes.
