transporting fish

I am going to Hawaii next week. I have lined up a dive trip. I currently catch fish in Florida and the Bahamas to put in my tank- I dont buy any fish, a rule my dad had when we were kids and I keep in my current tank. I am planning on catching a few fish while in Hawaii to add to my tank. I know some of you guys ship your fish overnight. What is the best way to do this. I can either fed-ex or put some type of sealed container in my checked bags. What additives should I add? etc.. Thank you for any help

Do you have a gigantic tank? When I was in hawaii I was swimming next to 12"+ yellow tangs and gigantic triggers. Also dont you need a permit to be doing such things?

The department of natural resources told me that I could harvest a recreation limit of legal fish. I have saved their e-mail in case I have a problem. I will catch smaller species when I am there. I ussally catch very small fish , then trade them for credit at the lfs when they get bigger.

I have no idea. Can you check with your LFS and see if/how they ship? Maybe you can call the folks at liveaquaria.com and ask them.

I dont know if the airlines will not give you a hard time. I dont want to be reading about you in the news. " Passenger with some unknown liquid stops airport."

Not sure this is a good option if you cannot get it shipped overnight. Collection regulations do vary and I am not sure about the legalities. FWIW, most airlines will not allow the carry on of live fish, not sure about checked bagage.
