Hi to all and hope your fish are doing fantastic. I just recovered from a crisis where I lost 3 of them but the rest of them are happy and eating like pics now. I guess my inexperience led me to lose 3 of these wonderful creatures.

Please keep reading....

I'm in burbank area, CA, I fould this contact in the border of Peru that exports WC zebras to japan his prices are better then any local i've seen here in USA. I was just wondering if it will be much trouble to get them out of the airport here in USA.


Has anybody done airport to aiport shipment? if so what do I need to know?

how do I get them out?

how much money do I need to pay at the aiport?

Do I need a license or some kind of permit? he has reserve 30 for me.


Your imput will be much appreciated!!


PS: The contact in Peru is trustworthy, I have friends in Australia that have used him before for other species but regulations are different down under.
We can ship them to you if you want.

Kind regards Anders.

Breaking the law on which end? It's illegal to export but not import.

Your not breaking the law the fish isn't from brazil. You can really bring in the fish yourself it might be cheaper. The safest way is to get a transhipper. One of my buddy imported some and forgot 1 paperwork the guys at the airport took the fish and he lost all 15 zebras. Safest bet is to get a trustworthy transhipper to get them for you.

I appreciate everyones input in this. To me is a really big deal so Im glad there are some good commends here. For those that think i'm doing something illegal i'm sorry.

I bet if you have the chance you will go for it without thinking about it!!

Of course it is inspector! The fish can be caught ship somewhere else and ship. Does it matter really they are building dam killing these fish anyways. Breeders like us aren't killing the fish we're replenshing them :D. Plus if it was illegal he wouldn't be able to ship in these fish. You ever tried to order fish from overseas before kid.

Hey how big are they? I can find young zebras here in WI/IL for about 100-150 each.
