will be checking every few days for peelers fingers crossed they should start a mass peel very soon,will be selling a lot online this year www.pensarnbaits.co.uk new site live very soon .
Its annoying as this time last year I was getting hundreds a tide so really cant be long now .
one idea i have is using frozen sea water for ice packs then when customer receives the bait can use the water to give the live crabs a drink .

Sounds a great idea in principle, but might be more complicated than at first thought.

Not an expert on the physics here. Something along the lines that sea water has a freezing point below zero, and there is an oddity where the fresher part of the water freezes first, making the remaining water progressively more saline. So there is not a single temperature where the water freezes. The saltiest bit freezes last. Possibly at minus quite a bit. -20?

I guess in reverse the saltiest bit would also defrost first.

when you freeze sea water your correct only the fresh water freezes the salt forms crystals but once the sea water is defrosted the crystals will mix back with the water keeping the original salinity the exact same .
salt water freezes around -4 deg so all good

I suppose the answer is to try your method and see if it works.
Make a postal package up of the crabs and ice packs and leave them roughly the same time it takes in the post.
I hope it works lol!
