Transport of fish
At PetAir, even fish fly!

Tiertransport Fische

The only thing faster than swimming is flying

Are you planning a longer stay or moving abroad? Hang on, don’t forget your fish!

We even fly fish! When it comes to the transport of fish and amphibians, trust the experts, as they need to be transported properly to ensure their safety and wellbeing. In the worst case, improper care can lead to the animal’s death. Given our many years of experience, we are well familiar with the dos and don’ts. Our goal is to ensure that the journey relaxed and any unnecessary waiting times are avoided. The journey must be as quick as possible since fish and aquarium plants need fresh oxygen after a while.

Transport of fish: Sensitivity is key

Before any long journey, animal’s health should be determined. In addition, all necessary documents for entry should be ready and available. We are here for you during the entire process and will provide all the information and advice on various provisions, laws and requirements. There are a few things, however, that we must consider when entering a country: in some countries, the commercial invoice must fully match the packaging list or the delivery note. In addition, you must pay close attention to the packaging of animals - for example, fish must be transported with water, in a double plastic bag. Furthermore, an oxygen of 48 hours must be added to the bag and the bag itself should be in a styrofoam or cardboard box lined with newspaper. The temperature is also important for sensitive animals such as fish. Depending on the animal, the temperature should be between +20C to +23C during the entire trip.

As you can see, there is quite a lot to consider in order to make sure that the animals are not harmed and that they arrive safe and sound. We will assist you with all of these concerns and take care of everything, because at PetAir, we care! Contact us!

I have sent a dog to the United States twice using PetAir…

… once in August 2016 and again now in January 2018. The service was excellent both times: every question has been answered promptly and competently, I have received all the relevant data (flight numbers etc.) within 24 hours and of all the annoying paperwork, I have only had to deal with the absolutely necessary. The care of the dogs during the transportation was to the point. Given my experience, I can only recommend PetAir.
