If you plan to eat your fish today or tomorrow, the world is your oyster! Seafood should be consumed within one to two days when it’s fresh – just make sure it smells like the ocean. There should be no unpleasant “fishy” odor. All fresh seafood should be kept refrigerated or on ice.
If you plan to save your seafood for later, stick the fresh fish in the freezer or try frozen or canned options. Frozen fish can be saved for up to six months.
