shipping costs

Why is it that it only costs 5 dollars to get a fish shipped from Thailand to a transhipper in the USA, AKA a very very long distance. And then it costs 40 dollars to get a fish shipped 3 states away?

Because they are shipped in shipments of hundreds of fish so you're just paying your part of that international shipping.

Hey, it's a good question. A lot of people probably want to know, too.
