I'm not too sure about this. I would certainly never risk sending/receiving fish in the post, but I think if it's done by courier it may be ok.

I recently ordered two gold severums from an online company which is very reputable. They were sent inside polystyrene boxes which were heated. The fish both arrived in perfect condition and are very healthy indeed.

Let me know if you want the name of the company :)

yes its legal, ebay dont class fish as animals, or at least a high enough class of animals to prohibit the sale on their site like they would if someone wanted to sell a dog or a horse for example.

Sellers are required to offer overnight shipping for live fish and shrimp.
