From our friends supplying beautiful fish to us from Bali, Fiji, the Philippines, Hawaii, and other exotic locales to all of us here in the states, we are all feeling the effects of the coronavirus.
Due to shutdowns by local governments and the lack of flights coming from these locales, there is and will continue to be a shortage of marine fish. While we have resumed operations on a limited basis, we are far from normal. The lack of flights has skyrocketed prices of fish particularly from seas in the central Pacific, Australia, and Southeast Asia. As such, you will see that prices on our website have increased. Regardless, you will see that our prices and selection are superior to other online stores, as we are still committed to delivering the best value and service online.
Please be patient with us as we navigate through this worldwide crisis together. We are doing all we can to bring a nice selection of fish in every week. However, unlike before, there is still no consistency with what is available industry-wide, so we cannot have accurate estimates as to when particular fish will be available...each week we are just taking all the fish we can get! We must operate on a week-to-week basis, and may not be shipping the entire week if we do not have enough fish.
In the meantime, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns, we will respond in a timely manner as we always do!
Most of all, we wish all of you health and strength during this difficult time. We love our fish, but health comes first. We are in this together and we know we will pull through this and come out stronger than ever.
Take care and stay safe,
The Reef Beauties Team
