Q: WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO FISH FOR...?
A: We've made a special
Fishing Calendar just for you.
Q: CAN I TAKE THE FISH BACK WITH ME TO THE STATES?
Yes, as long as it's well-frozen and in a leak-proof container.
The amount you can bring back will be subject to the airline restrictions
- check with your airline for complete baggage information to see how much
it will cost you to bring it back with you. If you are on a cruise ship,
contact the ship directly to see if they allow fish on board (most don't but
it can't hurt to ask).
For more information about the customs rules regarding seafood
imports into the U.S., click
here. Make sure also to check the FDA
List to be sure your fish isn't on there - if it is, you won't be allowed
to bring it in. We pack it in ice for you like you'd get at a supermarket,
but we don't provide packing and shipping services. Ask your hotel
about using their freezer space.
If you're bringing frozen fish back with you, you'll want
to contact the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration at (301)
436-1576 if you have any additional questions. If you're bringing a
stuffed and mounted fish back with you, check with the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife at (703)
358-2104 and your airline to make sure you are fully informed of all regulations
regarding, cost, duties, and limits. You can
also call the Mexico Department of Fisheries with any questions - they are
located in San Diego, California at
