Carrying fishes





  • Before purchasing the fish, make sure that it is fresh. This will ensure that fish is fresh when it reaches its final destination.

  • While purchasing the fish, always check fish for freshness by smelling it. Do not pack any such fish which smells “fishy”.

  • Always handle the dry ice after wearing the hand gloves. This will prevent any sort of damage to your skin.

  • Ensure that you have enough dry ice for packaging the fish, be it fresh or frozen. For example, you need around one pound of ice for about 25 pounds of fish. If you are carrying bulky fishes, such as crab legs, you need extra dry ice to protect them from air spots in the packaging.
