How long does fresh caught fish last in fridge?
Before placing your catch directly into your fridge, make sure you wash it in cold water and dry it with a paper towel. After the fish has been washed, you can then wrap it in wax paper, plastic wrap, or aluminum foil and place it in the fridge. Typically, your fresh fish will last up for two days in the fridge.
Is fish good after 4 days in the fridge?
Raw fish and shellfish should be kept in the refrigerator (40 °F/4.4 °C or less) only 1 or 2 days before cooking or freezing. After cooking, store seafood in the refrigerator 3 to 4 days. Any frozen fish or shellfish will be safe indefinitely; however, the flavor and texture will lessen after lengthy storage.
