Re: NANFA-- U.S.Postal Service won't ship

Fri, 2 Jun 2000 15:07:44 -0500

I am not a postal employee but, I seriously doubt that packages are
afforded any special handling because they have "Live Fish" written on
them. I have never heard of the postal service providing any special
services without charging extra for them. Additionally if the fish are
packaged properly there should be no concern that the fish will suffer
because they have been left in a truck or anywhere else for a period of
time. What's the difference if they are in a truck or sitting on your front
porch? I can't speak to the cabin pressure issue but I think the water may
offer some protection from this, not an expert just my opinion, but again
what guarantee do you have that the fish are shipped in a pressurized
compartment anyway? I believe someone did already mention that all areas of
the airplane are pressurized, even the "cargo" areas. If that is correct
then it's a non-issue.

Only one problem on this one. What if they ship it on a plane that is not
pressurized? or left in the hot sun in a truck? JiM C.
