Q: How are shrimp and fish sent and what about the winter weather or summer?
A: We send all our shrimps and fish carefully packed in double bags unless numbers of shrimp and fish are large enough for breather bags. Then it will be wrapped in bubble wrap or
a Styrofoam lined cardboard box filled with peanuts or foam to minimize shaking/movements during shipping.
In the winter, we add a heat pack to help the shrimps brave the cold and summer we add an ice pack if needed. If weather is deemed optimal, nothing is added.

Cut off time is Tuesday 8AM EST for orders to be shipped out same week. If we get your order after 8AM EST on Tuesday, this means your package will be shipped out the following Monday, unless special requests* (DOA policy may be voided due to special requests)
