Shipping Shrimp

I have previously read in the forums that there are restrictions to which state you can post shrimp to. I am in NSW, can someone tell me why some people selling shrimp do not post to certain states.? and also which states those are ?

Generally WA is the toughest state to get any fish, shrimp or plants in as they have tough import requirements and have been known to check more regularly. That is why some members will refuse to post to WA or to do so will be at the buyers risk.

Thanks Cindy, I try to do my best :D

Also it gets pretty challenging shipping during summer. Shrimps dont do too well with the heat so check the weather temp conditions before posting.

Thats a good idea if expensive shrimps are being shipped. I would wait for temps to be under 28 degrees before posting, especially if it is being sent to areas that take 2days to arrive.

On the plus side though, cindy, there are lots of shrimp keepers in Sydney with amazing shrimps.

You could just get them locally :)
