Re: Shipping Fish
Call your local VET, they often have boxes, 1-1.5 in in thickness, varying
sizes, and will often give them away since they are being used instead of
going to a landfil. I also got great ones from a pig breeding operation,
used to ship boar semen, label were great fun, slap a couple on the milk
jugs in the teachers fridge, and had ice bags that could be used for boo
boos at school. dont get them there any more, the milk thing wasn't that
funny to the farmers wife who is also a teacher, but it was probably an
accumulation of things that were funny to me and not to her.
