A Shipment to Toronto, Canada, 2nd February 2015


Dear all,
In preparation for an impending shipment to Toronto, Canada next week (2nd February, 2015), we thought we would like to share with you guys, some photos of the fishes to be ship there, a sort of a 'Preview'. A Canadian hobbyists who is starting a comm tank of 10 Shelook Reds and a Golden Head Xback, had teamed up with his local fish importer. So together, they made up a shipment of 25 Shelook Reds and 1 Xback.

The Canadian CITES in Ottawa would normally take about 6 weeks to process and approve a CITES import permit in Canada. This, in contrast with the rest of the World, is indeed very long and tedious when Hong Kong takes only about 3 days and Japan, 5-7 days to approve a CITES import permit. And to make matters worst, more time is needed to courier the Permit from Ottawa to the applicant's desired address and this takes up even more time.

The Shelook Reds are about 11-13 inches, all kept in white fibregrasses previously. Now, they have been shifted to black tanks for about a week, well conditioned for the long journey of more than 30 hours to reach Toronto, Canada. We hereby wish them a Bon Voyage!

Many thanks for reading.

Mrs Goh
