I was wondering the same thing. But I figured to wait till after the crazy holiday shipping is done,easier to get packages lost this time of year,but in January we can get to 10-30 degrees fahrenheit

10-30 celsius is a hell of a range. at one end they will be too cold and at the other they will run out of oxygen.

I had some shiped in winter and I would not do it again. Even with heatpacs included, overnite in southern NSW is just too cold to do safly in my opnion. Plus I just hate loosing fish when I don't have to.
