If you collect breeders for yourself and sell the babies for profit I call that commercial breeding not commercial collecting.

IMHO nothing is really commercial unless you make a profit. As I understand it if you have a bussiness and show a loss for X number of years in a row the IRS will tell you that what you have is a hobby and to quit taking illegal deductions.

TPWD as well actually define what is and isn't commercial collecting. I believe it is anything under 25 in the aggregate and not sold is not considered commercial.

Lastly there are vastly different dynamics and ethical standards between all the different sets of activities. It really means nothing whether you call something commercial or not because the label isn't going to change the ethics involved in each activity.
