I have been trying to find an online fish retailer/wholesaler/hatchery
that will sell and ship 3 or 4 small "albino channel catfish". 
Everything I have found so far won't ship or requires a min. $100.00

Hi scoobyfan,

Are you looking for live fish for an aquarium, or fish to eat, fresh
or frozen?  This is pretty vital in getting you the info you want!

Hey Scoobyfan,

I've found an online fish retailer who meets your requirements.

They are based near Tampa, so should reduce your shipping costs.  They
do have a minimum order of $10.00.  3 albino channel cats are priced
at $4.88, so you may have to order more than 3, or else make up the
$10 with other products, maybe some cool plants?

I wish you luck with your new fish!

This looks like exactly what I was looking for.  Thank you for your help.

Hi scoobyfan,

Alot depends on your location, but Blackwater Creek in Florida sounds
like a good possibility. They have (had?) 4-7" fingerlings and say
this about shipping, "Shipment will be sent to your closest major
airport. Freight charges for 1-3 boxes are less than $50.00."

I am looking for a few fish to keep in a home aquarium, when they
start to outgrow my tanks I will but them outside in a pond.  I live
in South Florida (Florida Keys) if it helps and would be willing to
drive anywhere south of Orlando to pick them up.

I looked at and the way they
list there prices it looks like they are selling in quantities
beginning with 500 which is more than I need.  I sent them an email on
the off chance they can help.

I was hoping that there would be some online fish store or hatchery
that would carry and ship them.  The only pet store within 50 miles of
my house hasn't been able to help.

The fish will be for cooking (jack salmon & buffalo fish).

BTW, hurricane Andrew virtually wiped out all the fish hatcheries
south of Miami years ago.
