I've been crabbing for years (trot line and pots off of my pier) but never really got into soft crabs and shedding.  I have been catching a lot of doublers this year and have been placing the peelers in my float box to monitor their shedding.  But it seems as soon as they begin to shed out (top shell busts open) they seem to die.  Do crabs go into some sort of sleep mode while shedding or are they dead?  How can I keep them alive until they do shed?

Remember they need plenty of oxygen and will die if it's to Hot!

The mortality rate in shedding operations at this time of year is very high.
