Dear members,

Since the strike by the United Parcel Service is on-going, I have been
delaying all shipments of live fishes via the U.S. Postal Service. I feel
that the Post Office's services are adequate in the slack times of the
year, excluding holiday's, but have had recent delayed shipments even
before the U.P.S. strike !

Example: five days from Silver Springs, Maryland resulting in numerous
D.O.A.'s !

Example: four days from Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin; same result !

So, I would recommend that all shipper's reduce their mailings of live
fish, at least until the present situation with U.P.S. is resolved and
even then, wait for the back-logs to clear both the above-mentioned
provider's facilities.

Regards,  BG
