I have bring fishes from Spain and United States to Peru in my hand bag with no oxigen just normal air with no loses or signs of stress. Just make sure they have at least 2/3 of air in their bag. The fishes were in the bags for around 15 to 20 hours. It also depends on the number and size of the fishes YMMV.
