In the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the United States Postal Service and UPS are working diligently to deliver packages, however both entities are unable to guarantee on-time delivery. As FishUSA continues to send out orders, please be aware that - because carriers cannot guarantee shipment - delays are likely.

If you have questions regarding your order, we are maintaining regular Customer Service hours. Please have your order number ready and contact us at 800.922.1219 or email sales@fishusa.com. We thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

Carrier Updates:

On April 1, 2020, the United States Postal Service announced that, effective April 3, it will no longer accept or process items to select countries including Cayman Islands, Chad, Ecuador, French Polynesia, Honduras, India, Kuwait, Libya, Madagascar, Maldives, Mongolia, New Caledonia, Panama, Peru, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Bolivia, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe.
