why is that true that the crabs die easier in OC? i have had a sucky mortality rate as well. Plus, i feel bad. I meant to ask some of the wiley veterans on here what is the best way to keep the crabs alive for a few hours before steaming them. i like to put ice in a cooler / cover the ice w/ cardboard or paper or a towel and then my crabs. I was never sure if it was better to keep the cooler lid open or closed.
anyone have any tips for keeping the crabs alive for a few hours?
Assume my frig is not big enough
