It’s always best to eat the fresh fish at earliest possible – preferably on the same day of purchase. If needed, pack the fish with ice and store in your refrigerator. For freezing, put the fish straight into the deep freezer as soon as you receive it. Remember that the oily fish do not normally freeze like white fish, so keep it no longer than 2 months.
TIP: Always write the date on your package when freezing. Once you’ve defrosted the fish, it is not advisable to re-freeze it again.
