Thank you for visiting and shopping at FishPortals.com.​ Following are the terms and conditions that constitute our Shipping Policy. 


Live Fish Shipping Policy:

FishPortals.com is based in Portland, OR and uses this location to determine shipping costs. We only ship live fish on Mondays to minimize the risk of delay and ensure that the fish arrive at their destination in a timely manner. 


Live Arrival Guarantee:

We offer a Live On Arrival (LOA) guarantee for all our fish shipments. Please see our refund policy for more info.


Shipping Method:

We offer 4 shipping options in the continental us only. These include the 49 States (including Alaska, excluding Hawaii). Please select the best option for your schedule and plan for delivery accordingly:

  • USPS Priority Mail (delivered within 1-3 business days depending on location)
  • UPS Next Day Air Saver® (expedited next-day shipping)
  • UPS Next Day Air® (guaranteed overnight service for time-sensitive shipments)
  • UPS Next Day Air® Early (guaranteed early morning delivery for time-critical shipments)


Once the shipment has left the Post, you will receive a tracking number with an ETA of the fish. We only ship Mondays to ensure timely delivery.



It is your responsibility to ensure that someone is available to receive the fish on the day of delivery. If no one is available, the package may be delayed or returned to the carrier's facility. We cannot be held responsible for any delay or damage caused by failed delivery attempts.
