Shipping Fish???

I go to Mexico (Baja) and fish once a year or so. When I get a nice catch I buy an ice chest, have the hotel freeze the fish, pack the chest with newspaper and take it home with me on the airplane. Being optimistic, will I be able to do the same from Belize if I get lucky?

I do not know of any packing service that does frozen fish ,like they do in alaska ,or mexcio ,But seems like a easy task .store in hotel big freezer. zip bag wrap and pack?? but you will have fish to eat as fishing the reef is very good here..Where are you staying???

I did this once before for a guest but it was a while back and may not be relevant now. You need a permit, or did, to export fish but it was reasonably easy to get via fax. I can't remember where the permit was from though, Fisheries Dept or BAHA perhaps.

Thanks for the responses. I am either staying at the Blue Tang or Aqua Marina.

I just pack my own frozen fish in the cooler and take it on the plane as checked luggage when I do this in Mexico...no permit required. Everybody does it and the fishing Capitans clean and bag the fish for you at the end of your day of fishing. Is that how it works in AC, too? How much does a day fishing trip run, anyway? Any recommendations for Capitans?

Thanks!
