Shipping with AAE


Recommended Posts

Below is an outline of how to ship fish with AAE

  • need an approved styro box this will have an approval mark on the lid
  • you will need an inner liner so large garbage bag or similar
  • you will need an absorbant so layer of newspaper on bottom of box
  • don't feed the fish for 48 hrs before shipping
  • double bag with 2 elastic bands per bag
  • water to 1/3 of bag height
  • use Prime 1-2 drops depending on bag size
  • mix half tank water and half pre conditioned fresh water
  • use oxygen
  • use some sort of packing if bags are loose in box ie bubblewrap or newspaper
  • size of bag is determined by size and number of fish
  • print a label in A4 paper with receivers name and contact details plus your name, contact details and address as sender
  • and put it in a plastic bag and tape it to the lid
  • leave the lid unsealed as they will want to inspect the box
  • take a roll of 2" packing tape and seal the box after they OK it
  • call the receiver and advise con note number and flight details

Hey Couchy,

AAE's Terminal is located next to the Qantas one at Corner Shiers Avenue and Fifth Street.

Just called them to check on a flight number to Adelaide as I will be shipping some fish for the 1st time and they informed me that you have to be there 2 hours prior to the scheduled flight...

Hope this helps.
