Kenya marine center is the largest supplier of ornamental fish and invertebrates in East Africa.
Boasting of a decade worth of fish exports, we have a wide range of packing experience including the packing of sharks. In this case the carpet shark.
This is a step by step procedure of packing a shark to survive the “flight” of its life literally.
Know the size of the shark as you fetch it. Carpet sharks can grow up to 4 meters long.
Prepare the packing box customized with Styrofoam to accommodate the length of the shark.
Place the shark in a special plastic container, before placing it in the plastic bag filled with water. This is to prevent the shark from damaging the plastic bag that holds its water and packed air.
Fill the plastic bag with air and seal tightly.
Seal the box.
