 deadline for Priority Overnight.
 Out of 26 shrimp, 20 were alive. Out of 18 SAEs, 2 were alive.
 The shrimp were about 1" - 1 1/4" in length.  The SAEs were about 1" in

I'm in Florida and the same shipment out of A.A.G on my end yielded 10 out of 
12 shrimp alive and only 2 out of the 10 SAE's alive. The eight dead SAE's 
looked a little too chewed on to have received such damage during the course 
of only a day from the two tiny SAE's that were left. The 8 bodies were 
pretty badly decomposed and the odor on opening the bag didn't smell like 
anything that could been generated overnight either.
