Shipping live fish across the globe is not always easy.
These captive-bred Cyclopterus lumpus were supposed to fly from Reykjavík to Osaka in 48 hours, but…
… they got hit by a series of operational snags and were left inside their box for…
…210 hours (9,5 days) !!
Miraculously, every single animal made it alive and well to their final destination, where they will help Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan‘s staff educate the public about the perils the oceans face.
The good news is that such an absurd occurrence was a first in Flying Sharks’ 16,5 years, and we will endeavour to not have this happening ever again!
Many thanks to all parties involved in making this operation a success, despite the many difficultties faced along the way!
