Your local hospital or pharmacy might be able to hook you up. Lots of meds come in refrigerated. I have an organ transport box that is perfect for a six pack and is a real conversation starter at parties!!!


It isn't Mr. Bean's from Rat Race, is it? :P

Funny you asked about styro. My wife is a pharmacy tech and asked me just last night if any fish nerds might be able to use the styro shipping coolers because she hates that they just get tossed. I was intending to offer them on the trading dock, with the caveat that I have no control over what size comes in or when. I would also mention that I have used them a couple times, and they are not waterproof. I took one to the mountains with me this past winter, and brought home a handful of fish in it. Water temp stayed real cold even though we had the heat crankin' on the 2 hour ride home. All fish survived, but a noticeable amount of water had soaked out the bottom. But it did hold most. I would think these would make excellent liners for a bigger, water proof containers that you place bagged fish in. And I don't know about their crush limit, but the ones I used were pretty solid, stronger than a box, I'd say...

I went to my pharmacy and they said they just threw away three boxes just like the ones I want but they would save any more for me. Unless I start breeding fish seriously again I doubt I'll need many but it's nice to know I can get them easily.

Hey, the fish in question this time were shipped to me. Michael did one of the best jobs packing fish that I have ever seen.
It is unfortunate that he is getting flack, as he is simply packing fish as good as it can be done. I have to go with PO employee
having a chip on his shoulder, or something similar.

Just skip telling them that they are fish. Label box LIQUID.PERISHABLE. Not untrue. Just not saying that there are
fish within the liquid. Could as well be fish stew. When the PO screws up, sometimes that is what you get.
