Hello, I am doing a project on transporting fish and will be making some packaging to transport them. I have a short questionnaire which I would really appreciate if you could fill in. I need as many as possible and would be very grateful. Thank you.

4. Do you see any problems in transporting fish?

5. Have you ever come across such a product?

Section A (pet store employee)
1. Tanks A Lot!
2. No.
3. Plastic bags
4. More aggressive fish can easily poke holes in the bag, leading to a loss of water and stress. Also, the bags are transparent so the fish must be stressed from seeming so out in the open.
5. The only fish transport things I've seen are the cardboard boxes the fish are shipped to the store in and the clear plastic bags we move them in.
6. I'm sure it would help minimize stress and make transportation a much less stressful ordeal.
7. Definately.

Section B (fish owner)
1. Not very often anymore. Used to buy fish once or twice a week.
2. I have a pond, a 55 gallon tropical tank, a 10 galon betta tank, and a 12 gallon saltwater tank.
3. I take the fish home in transparent fish bags.
4. Sometime the bags overheat or leak while I'm taking them home.
5. I've heard of them before, but I've never seen one for sale.
6. I like the idea. It'd be better than using a cooler or a bag.
7. If it weren't too expensive I would definately buy one.

Byez!! Very Happy
