How much fish and how are you packing it? I've shipped 50 pounds of frozen Salmon and Halibut home from Vancouver Island on a box made for shipping fish/game with no dry ice at all. http://www.alaskabutcherequip.com/storage-handling-and-shipping-supplies/fish-boxes-and-liners.html This box is a styrofoam box which fits very neatly into a waxed cardboard box. The small size I use holds almost exactly 50# of frozen fish which is vacuum packed and frozen. I put it into a large trash bag and pack it into the styrofoam cooler, getting as much air space out of the cooler as possible. Then seal everything up. Last time I traveled, I experienced several plane delays, including one of several hours in Dallas where it was 108* on the tarmac. 36 hours after I packed the cooler, with no dry ice, I arrived home and the packages were still frozen solid and just beginning to break a sweat. What I'm saying is, you really don't need dry ice if you pack the fish properly.
