You have received your fish. What do you do with it now?

1. Open the box and remove the clear plastic pouch containing your shipping documents - It contains your itemised invoice so that you can check your order.

2. If there appears to be any external damage to your box, please sign for it as “damaged”, if however, it is damaged but was delivered without being signed for, please inform us as soon as possible.

3. Unpack your box, checking the items on your invoice, and put the contents straight into your fridge or freezer, after packing in portions, as per the instructions below.

4. Recycle, re-use or discard the packaging. A handy “how to” guide is included in your shipping documents pack.
