Please note the minimum quantity for export is 3,000 fish at AUD $1.00 each OR AUD$3,000. We can't export small quantities of fish. This is because of the very involved process to export live Australian native fish. The airlines also usually impose minimum freight weights. Usually they charge for 100kg even if you only send a single box of 11kg. The process for sending live fish itself is very involved. It is therefor necessary to have a shipment that has the economies of scale to cover the whole process. The minimum shipment value is AUD$3,000.00 fish value, plus all the other shipping costs.

WHOLESALE PRICES Taking orders now for bulk quantities for 2023-24 season. Don't miss out. Production is limited.
