Can you ship shrimp in breather bags? I was told by a person they would die.

I've shipped lots of shrimp in breather bags. I've had a couple leak, but other than that they are great. If you double knot the top of the bag and give it a good squeeze before boxing it up, they should do well.

That's all I use. They are great. Just get all the air out. I start by bringing the top togther where there is still some water so I know all the air is out. That helps the bags from leaking. I've taken breather bags and dropped them from 6 feet and they still don't bust :) Thay also make great water balloons but way to expensive for water ballons :)

DC and Annie have both sent me shrimp in breather bags, 100% arrived alive. Even when Annie sent me them in December, Friday before X-mass.
