    I use a Styrofoam box. Pack the vacuum packed fillets tightly in it. Make sure there is as little air space as possible. Then 3 black bin bags.
    Flight home takes close to 2 days and it is still frozen.

    The box has walls about 1.5 cm thick.

    We do not buy fish at home. We import enough in our two trips to supply us.
    One box in summer, two boxes in March.

    The air companies are fine with the boxes, and we get an import permit each time.

    Thanks. Salmon fishers here pack in their clothes in the coolers, abandon the clothes and fly home with the cooler full of frozen fish.
    Best excuse ever to buy a serious cooler = Yeti Tundra.
    Fish supplies here are OK both fresh and frozen. Not much choice but that's as good as it gets.

    I'm impressed by the frozen fish on a plane idea.

    Been doing it for 20 years now. First Norway to zuK, then all the way to Cayman.
    We bleed our fish - superior taste to shop bought fish.
    Plus shop bought can be 21 days old!
