Seafood products are very perishable. All shipments should be packed with ample refrigerant to maintain the seafood freshness in average weather conditions for the shipping period. Somebody should be available to receive the seafood products upon delivery, or shortly thereafter. If you are sending a seafood gift to someone, please notify them when to expect the delivery. If no one is available, and the package is left unattended for an extended period (especially in hot climates), it will not be guaranteed that the seafood will remain in a good condition.
