Another shipping alternative in some situations is to ship by bus. Grayhound
and other bus lines will accept freight (up to a point), so that you can
deliver a box to the bus and call ahead to the recipient to meet the bus at
the station. This can cost around $25, but the fish can move a surprising
distance in 12 hours or less and won't sit in a sorting room.
