New to Saltwaterfish.com? Buying fish online.
Not sure if buying fish online is a good idea? It's easier than you think and the benefits are amazing. When you purchase from Saltwaterfish.com you have access to the largest inventory, the best deal...
Even though Saltwaterfish.com has been selling & shipping saltwater
fish, corals & invertebrates since 1999, we still talk to people who
are surprised that they can buy marine life online. Remember that
regardless of where you buy your marine life, they always have to be
shipped from the ocean or aquaculture facility. We believe that buying
online from a reputable supplier is the way to go. Why? It effectively
makes YOU the wholesaler in the transaction. Here’s why that is good
for you and your fish.
Saltwaterfish.com offers marine life that has arrived directly from
suppliers overseas. We use the best suppliers and they understand our
need for quality. Direct shipments provide the quickest chain of custody
from ocean to dedicated facility.
Once in the facility, the marine life is acclimated and quarantined
until the husbandry manager determines the animals are healthy and ready
to be sold. It is at this point they go up on the site for sale.
Once on the site, you buy the marine life and choose your delivery
options. They are shipped via FedEx Overnight Service directly to your
home. Voila! You are the wholesaler…. and you have bypassed several
intermediaries along the way.
When you look at the typical chain of custody, you start to see why
buying online from Saltwaterfish.com has distinct advantages. At other
places, the fishermen will sell to an exporter, who will sell to an
importer, who will sell to a distributor, who will sell to a retailer,
who will then sell to you. Of course, each of these middlemen marks up
the price of the fish so each entity can get their profits. But, more
importantly, each of those stops along the way requires a separate
acclimation of the marine life. And as we know, acclimation is the time
when marine life is at the greatest risk of disease and mortality.
When you begin to understand this, you start to see why direct shipment
to the consumer is the better way to go.
So, if you ever wonder how we have such great offers on marine life,
read the above paragraph again. We just believe we offer a better way
to get quality livestock to you at a better price. So if you are ready
to experience the best, give the Saltwaterfish.com advantage a try.
