Can I eat fish that’s been in the fridge for 4 days?
Information. Cooked fish and other seafood can be safely stored in the refrigerator 3 to 4 days. Refrigeration slows but does not prevent bacterial growth. Therefore, it’s important to use food within recommended time before it spoils or becomes dangerous.
How can you tell if fish is spoiled?
The best way to determine if fish has gone bad is to smell it. If the fish smells sour or spoiled, throw it out. If the fish has a mild ocean smell, it’s likely safe to eat—but if you aren’t certain, there are other signs you can look for. For example, it’s bad fish if it appears or feels slimy and/or has a dull color.
How long can thawed fish stay in the fridge?
When it is completely thawed, keep the fish in a refrigerator for no more than two days before eating it.
