How to best store fish

Whether fresh or frozen, fish should always be transported in a cool bag on the way back home from the shop. When storing fish and preparing it in the kitchen, make sure that it is kept apart from other foods. Once you have got back home, remove the freshly purchased whole fish or fish fillets from their packaging and place them in, for example, a glass salad bowl, covered with a lid, in the coldest part of the refrigerator, namely on the glass shelf just above the vegetable compartment. You can keep your fish there for up to one day. Fresh fish should preferably by cooked on the same day that it is bought. Where fresh fish is pre-packaged in a special storage bag (comprising aluminium foil) specifying its use-by date, you can keep it in that bag. Place the frozen fish directly in the freezer as soon as you get it back home. To find out how long you can keep it for, refer to the instructions appearing on the packaging.
