Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy

  1. We do not charge a packaging fee. The rates dictated to us by the shipping company are what you are billed.

  2. All shipments with live fish require overnight shipping. Same day service can be discussed if you feel it necessary.

  3. Stated shipping prices are approximate to your province through FedEx. We have negotiated great rates with our shippers and work to apply those savings to you. Should your order exceed the norm, we will contact you prior to shipping.

  4. Overnight shipping does not mean the fish will arrive the day after you place your order. We will contact you and confirm a date you will be home to receive the fish in order to ensure their safe arrival.

  5. A signature will be required to receive the shipment.

  6. Dry goods will not be shipped with live fish.

  7. We can ship fish in the middle of winter, but these will incur extra costs for styro, heat packs, and insulation.

Shipping to the United States

  1. Customers are responsible for being aware of rules and requirements for importing fish into the U.S.A.

  2. We will only ship to states with ports of entry that have Fish and Wildlife Service offices. 

    1. See ​here for a list of ports of entry:

  3. Shipments ​will be sent via Air Canada Cargo or Westjet Cargo and will be required to be picked up at the airport.

Returns & Arrive Alive Guarantee

  • If the conditions of the Arrive Alive guarantee are met, we will replace the fish with a new fish.
