The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suggests you store fresh fish and other seafood in the refrigerator if you are going to eat it within two days after purchase. Cooked fish can stay in the fridge for three to four days, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Fresh fish will last longer if you wrap it tightly in foil or moisture-proof freezer paper and keep it in the freezer until you use it. Once frozen, the USDA advises eating the fish within three to eight months. The longer fish stays frozen, the more it will lose its texture and flavour.
If you plan to eat fresh fish within two days, store it in the fridge. If not, place it in the freezer and eat it within eight months.
