OUR CUSTOMERS, DELIVERIES AND PACKING
I just thought I would like to share this picture and piece of information with you as it explains another aspect of our business. The picture shows a twenty Box Order of Mixed Coldwater fish we sent three days ago to one of the largest, if not the largest Aquatic Retail shop in Ireland, Clearly Aquatics in Bangor. The consignment had 4300 fish in total making up the order, including small, medium and large size Fancy Goldfish and some extremely nice London and Bristol Shubunkins so if you are in Ireland this shop is worth a visit !!.
All the fish within the Star Fisheries facility were inspected by two Fish Health Inspectors the day before sending the fish, these Inspectors were from the UK Government Fish Health Inspectorate, CEFAS. Following the inspection the necessary export paper work was then generated enabling us to send the fish, which since Brexit has become incredibly complicated and it is only with the support of CEFAS and DAERA( Irish Department Of Agriculture ) that we were able to make this shipment happen, I am truly grateful to both Government parties for their help and support.
All the fish were packed in twin wall cardboard boxes with double plastic bags inside the box, approx 75% pure oxygen and 25% water is applied to the bag. There was no polystyrene boxes or heat packs used or needed. Our fish are Coldwater Fish and as such are packed and sent in this manner, summer or winter. They do not require heat packs or polystyrene boxes, just care and consideration after their journey as if there is a temperature difference from where they may have come from to your environment, a good two hours floating on your Aquarium before releasing the fish is recommended.
If there is winter temperatures outside, the fish on their journey may arrive colder than your Aquarium and if a hot day possibly they could be warmer, both are dealt with the same way, a good acclimatisation floating period before releasing the fish into their new set up.
Our aim is to ensure the best possible journey for all our fish to arrive in tip top condition into their new homes, and this principle is applied the same whether it is one fish ordered from our website, or as in this case 4300 fish to the largest retail Aquatic Shop in Ireland.
Finally you will be pleased to know all the fishes made their Irish Journey safely across the water
