Buying shrimp and carry on plane

by youngken Online Now Aug 31, 2011 at 12:36 PM

I need to buy some spices at
http://shop.kreeftengarnalen.nl
and bring to my Ukraine.
Anyone has such an experience to carry small amount of fish on plane?
Is it easy to go through the Custom declaration?
Thanks

    I only brought fish aboard once in my hand luggage.

    At Schiphol Airport vacuum sealed fish is sold and that does not smell.

    You could ask the Worden company if they can seal the package.


    Bringing food into another country depends on local regulations. Check those before bringing the fish in.

    Good luck,

    You brought fish for food or for pet?
    If for pet, it need water to survive. Is it possible to pass through the Custom?

    It was for food. If you carry life animals the airline has special regulations.

    Any animal other than a cat or a dog under 6 kg, can not be carried as hand luggage.
