Fish/Plant Importers

Does anyone know about any companies in the tri-state area that are involved in importing/breeding fish and plants?

I'm looking to make a career change and I'm seriously considering working for a fish wholesaler.

Also, anyone with connections in the industry who'd like to drop me PM, I'd love to hear about what its like to work on the inside, so to speak.

Only wholesaler in the Northeast that I know of is Fish Mart in New Haven, CT. All the other wholesalers I know of are in California, Florida, or other parts of the country.

Do you have any experience in the industry or know anyone who does? I'm really desperate to make connections.

This might be a long shot...but maybe contact Cory from Aquarium Co-op...he does talks and has a video on what it takes to open a fish store...he might be able to help you with your situation. I'd think that for a LFS owner...it's only a good thing to get additional quality importers/wholesalers into the game, even though it seems he orders most of his stock from overseas.

She'd probably be another good one.
