Put fish which have been recently been fed in a bag for shipping . They will
regurgitate food as a part of their panic reaction.

That is why we *fast* them for a couple of days before shipping. They don't
foul their water.

If somebody (massing many time my weight) grabbed me, shoved me into a bag
and packed me in a box to be sent (in darkness) across the world as I know
it, I'd lose color and suffer panic reactions too.

All the best!
