I just did it a few days ago. Shrimps consist of various types of TBs and others.
- Packaged by sellers in larger bags of water and air, traveling by post for 12 hours in insulated box with outside temp between 65F - 78F.
- I repackaged them in 5 kordon bags, each contains 5 - 15 shrimps. No air, just about 100 cc of water in each bag, then in an insulated box in my luggage for 8 hrs.
- Then my luggage was in the cargo area of the flight for 15 hrs. Note, it was very cold in there.
- 3 hrs after the flight, I opened the insulated packages, all bags were icy cold, no casualty.
Shrimps are very tolerant to coldness, it's the heat they can't deal with as well in transportation. If you carry them in a cooler with you, I'm sure 30 hrs is nothing.
