Can goldfish be shipped in the winter time? Absolutely. Goldfish are cold water fish as it is, so a little chilly weather doesn’t bother them at all. However, when below freezing temps or severe weather are predicted, we take precautions to insure our fish arrive to our customers safe and sound.
We can add insulation to our boxes, using stryofoam or foil liners, when the temperatures are frigid. We also have the ability to ship all our wholesale goldfish and koi FedEx Priority Overnight. Delivery is guaranteed by 10:30AM, which prevents your fish from riding around on a truck all day.
When severe weather is expected, delaying flights and making travel dangerous, we will postpone your order until it is safe to ship. Our sales staff monitors the national weather on a daily basis and will keep you informed if we feel it is best to delay your order.
