Established in 2006 Flying Sharks has been flying live marine animals to public aquaria all over the World, from Japan to the USA, Turkey to Dubai, Singapore to Saudi Arabia, all European countries to Russia, and many other locations. We regularly supply ornamental fish and invertebrates in boxes, and frequently move large amounts of animals in large shipping containers by sea, road or air.

All animals are collected by our staff, often in cooperation with commercial fishermen, none of them using environmentally destructive techniques, such as trawling, drift gill-netting or chemicals of any sort. The vast majority of animals are hand collected individually, while some swim passively into traps or get caught by barbless, easily removable, hooks.

Flying Sharks is also proud to boast a predominantly scientific team and fervorously supports research conducted both inhouse or by our "Flying Sharks Research Fund" recipients. All our results (both the good and the not-so-good) are published in peer reviewed journals (check them out in the "Literature" section) and disseminated in scientific meetings all over the globe.

Feel free to get to know us better by touring our "Missions" on the menu on top and don't miss our "Research Fund" area also.
