As an importer of live tropical fish, you know that it is critical that your cargo travels with care and arrives in the shortest possible time.  You need a customs expert who can help you avoid the delays and fees that can add anxiety to the process—as well as potential financial loss. Why not work with a customs broker who can provide you with the peace of mind you need?

You’re probably aware that federal regulations have changed and importers of live tropical fish are now required to file their entries electronically.  Where importers of these goods were once able to proceed manually for clearance, customs clearance must now be done in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE).  Customs brokers are the quickest and easiest way for you to get your entries filed.
