● Like many other species, fish can be specific to certain parts of the world, because of various factors like climate and food source. Popular fish are bred in farms, where the business operators will collect orders and ship the fish out accordingly.

● Shipping fish from overseas safely involves a process of bagging the fish and oxygenizing the water, and then laying them in a bigger box.

● Protecting them to be shipped overseas is intense and meticulous. Some fish need to be kept cold, some kept warm, most need individual bags, and some may need some anti-anxiety mix for the water.

● Almost all bagged fish have a 48-hour deadline to be delivered, or at least be taken to a place where re-bagging and re-oxygenation can occur.

● All shipped fish are checked through customs. The amount of time it takes to get through customs is not predictable, though with thorough paperwork and documentation in hand, the process can generally be smooth and quick.

● Every country has different rules set by their own government as to what is allowed. The Fish and Wildlife Administration of the U.S. have many standards, because protection of the U.S. ecological system is important. Some states have their own rules.


● Overall, your fish should be in healthy and safe condition.
