I'm in Florida and the same shipment out of A.A.G on my end yielded 10

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

Thanks for the comments, Bob.  My bag of SAEs too smelled absolutely
foul.  I was amazed that two of the SAEs were still alive when I opened
the bag, although they didn't last much longer.

On the other hand, it's pretty amazing what heat can do in a small
time.  I suspect that it would speed up some biochemical processes,
including those bacterial activities we call rotting. How fast do fish
putrefy?  Can anyone else address this issue?
