Hello! I have a question. I am new to Betta fish ect, and I see alot of people buy their fish off of I went on there and looked for a bit, and I will probably be buying off there later on. Can someone please explain the whole trans shippers thing? I don't think I quite understand.

Any live fish shipped to the US from overseas must go through a transshipper. They are required because there is extensive paperwork to fill out AND because fish are sent in very large numbers at one specific time, making a transhipper necessary to dole the fish out to each owner.

Here is Jennifer Vivieros' page about how she transships, others have their own prices/ methods and you just have to pick which one you want to go with.
