I have already got a quarantine room organised, but i need to find out about what species are and aren't allowed. Im going over to hand pick what i want so some tom, dick, or harry, doesn't just give me there poor quality fish!

In the past, the exporter must also held a valid permit to export to OZ (you cannot just bring them along as baggages). Not sure if this rule has change in recent years.

It is still the case that the exporter must be approved to export to Australia, as well as the importer holding a current and approved permit to import. The exporter will be required to provide numerous documents; including veterinary health certificates etc; that only the larger established export companies are prepared or able to provide. Small outlets such as shops, private dealers etc are generally unable to obtain approval to export and are usually unwilling to jump through the hoops necessary to obtain vet health certificates etc. Don't mean to rain on your parade, but the whole "Import Game" is no where near as simple as most people would tend to think.

If I can help you further with info etc, feel free to give me a call after mid-day.

Cheers,

I should add that when you look at the fees, etc it is very difficult and costly to import small amounts of fish.

You really need to be a big player to meet the costs, (or you could go though an established importer in Australia).

Dont mean to burst your bubble, but this has been thrown in the too hard basket by many a fish keeper.

For the sake of your wallet and the fish that you purchase, I would have a good read through all of the info Will_wombat has posted and make sure you have crossed your T's and dotted your I's.

Not to mention, that "quality fish" and "Thailand" usualy dont belong in the same sentence.
