I thought I would share an update...
Been emailing back and forth with the seller. I still haven't gotten a shipment date from him. Last we talked was just over a week ago and I was told that he had not gotten a shipment date from the transhipper in Canada. Which, I believe quite frankly, because I tried to figure out where to send shipment money to etc for transhipping after telling him I had ordered 3 fish from X seller. No response. Still. So....a little disappointed with how things are going. But I'm glad that the seller has been contacting me. It's too bad that this is the only legal way. I'm not even sure that there are other transhippers in Canada.
