I've found that turning the water to steam and adding a little J.O. #1 works well! Grin Grin Grin Grin

Reminds me of a T-shirt at Boater's World.  One crab is asking the other crab who's name is Bob how's the water? Bob...Bob...  The water is boiling in a pot.  laugh laugh laugh

"What is the difference between JO #1 and #2, we have JO #2 at home, but don't know the difference  "

Steve had all the details in one of his posts, but the basic difference is that #2 contains a lot more salt, especially flake salt. #2 is a popular crabhouse blend.
#1 can be salted to taste, and in my opinion is fine without any, and without all the salt, your getting about 1/3 more seasoning for your money!

There is no guarantee with this. It all depends if the crabs gills have dried out or not. I have put crabs in a live box that had river water pumped to it and had them die. (crabs were out of the water for only 8 hours) But weren't covered while in the boat. They were alive in the basket but the sun was beating on them all day long. I opened some of them up and their gills were brown and dry. As long as the crabs were kept cool and out of the sun The only thing you can do is try. Put them in a live box. If they dont live after the 1st 1/2 hour go with the above suggestions. laugh laugh

thank you very much -----and yes you are right-------we do need all of the help we can get--------no matter how small the project is-----never underestimate the potential of anyone no matter how insignificant they may seem-----restoring the bay is very possible and i am astonished that it isn't the most important domestic issue between all of those states that share in the richness of that beautiful bay---(and of course all of the other states south of it that also enjoy the harvesting of our brackish water creatures)------i am going to conduct my own experiment in reaclimation and will post it under "HABITAT" in my SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA "BACK YARD" BLUE CLAW CRAB EXPERIMENT " which is currently underway as we speak..thanx again for your support ---- Michael ----passionate about those blue claw crabs sweetheart

I JUST DESIGNED A SPECIAL GRATING LOWERING LEVEL TO RE-ACCLIMITIZE THE CRABS GRADUALLY---I WILL LOWER THEM INTO THE WATER AT ABOUT 1/8 OF AN INCH EVERY 10 TO 15 MINUTES TO SEE IF I CAN KEEP MORE ALIVE THIS TIME---THE LAST TIME I LOST HALF OF MY CRABS IN THE FIRST DAY-----I BELIEVE THEY WENT INTO SHOCK Shocked

What was the salinity of the water where they where caught and where you tried to put them back?  Was it a closed system?  If so was it ariated? If it wasn't a closed system how much flow did you use.  Water temps and the temerpature of the crabs also plays a big roll.

i am not sure what the salinity of the water was in Louisiana where the crabs were caught -(i am in California)-but since they are mature females i am assuming that they were in or moving to more saline waters 2ppt to 6ppt below saltwater (30ppt and 36ppt i believe)  i put them in 10ppt --i did not know at the time about the females moving to more saline waters after their terminal molt nor did i expect to get any female crabs---i thought that they were all gonna be males-

yes it is a closed system (if you mean is it like an aquarium or pond otherwise i don't understand what you mean)

yes it is aerated

and water temps vary from 68 to 72 degrees

if you want to see what i am doing go to "Habitat" and look under "the southern California backyard blue claw crab experiment"

i appreciate all input thank you-----Michael
