Default FREE - Sailfin Tang for pickup at YYC airport

Regardless of having made it through both US and Cdn customs, screening for Air Canada would not allow a beautiful Sailfin Tang through with more than 100 ml of water.

So, I'd rather this gorgeous fish live than "slip it in with enough water to keep it wet and buy a bottle of water after through security to refill the bag" <-------Srsly.

It is at Air Canada in the main terminal at departures at oversized luggage. It is stressed out but it is a beautiful ORA Sailfin Tang. But it must be picked up today as it was packaged on Saturday and due to several delays over two days, it only has another day of oxygen.

I am already off to my final destination and Air Canada will hold it until someone picks it up. Thank you.

Did you not check Air Canada's screening requirements first before trying this??

Well I have to say that this was a lesson learnt. I saw this at about 2:15 this afternoon and thought 'why not? Save a fish, help a fellow Canreefer. Not doing much' got down there at 3:15 and no one knows where the fish is. Not air canada, not oversized baggage, no one! So after 45 minutes, I find that this person took it with them. Or thats what I was told. I have to admit, im Pi553D! Waisted almost 2 hours, almost 1/4 tank of gas and 8 f'in $ for parking.....

hey Baker, it is good to know that there are people out there willing to help. At least on the bright side, you earned my salute. =D

hats off to you Baker!! You did your best.

IMO this fish was doomed the minute it was purchased
