COVID 19 UPDATE 03/25/20:
After quite a bit of digging, it sounds like we are definitely allowed to stay open, and are considered an "essential" business. That being said, we will have some new restrictions laid out below (effective IMMEDIATELY). Again though, I can not stress enough how important it is to stay at home. If you don't absolutely need to come out, then don't! The sooner we do this, the quicker it will all be over.
• New TEMPORARY hours:
• 1 customer/group in the store at a time: In order to maintain as much social distancing as possible, we will only be allowing a single customer/group into the store at once. Once they have left, the next customer may come in. Please try to have what you are looking for in mind, so as to keep stops as short as possible. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but we MUST do everything we can to keep people away from each other.
• Curb side pickup: if you know what you want, we can bring it out to you. Calling ahead (513-443-4741) with payment information will be incredibly helpful, so all we need to do when you arrive is bring out your order.
• Shipping: We can ship anything that you need, food, supplies, fish, or any combination of these things. Call into the store, during posted hours, and we will get your payment info and shipping address. If you are in our 1 day UPS ground shipping radius, we will only be charging $7.99/sm box, and $9.99 for the larger boxes, in total shipping costs. This will be while boxes last, I will need to update this after that point.
• 6 foot distance: I will be keeping a six foot distance from you, and I ask that you do the same. No offense to anyone, but better safe than sorry!
Here at Blue Hook Aquatics we take great pride and care in the fish that we keep. We quarantine EVERY fish that you see for sale for a minimum of 10 days to ensure you're getting the healthiest and best quality fish around! We feel that as a customer you deserve the extra sense of security; knowing that you will not be bringing home a fish that is carrying a yet unknown disease.
We strive to have a constantly changing stock of very high quality fish, many that you will not see anywhere else! We were once customers ourselves, and know how annoying it can be to walk into your local fish store, and see the same fish over and over. We love seeing new and exciting fish just as much as you do!
If you ever have any questions we are here to help! Always feel free to ask us as many questions as possible; we can't answer the questions that aren't asked! The more informed you are the better choices you will make, and the happier and healthier your fish will be.
