How long can you have fresh crab out of the sea in the refrigerator after it's cooked?

Report as

Crab goes bad very quickly after it dies unless you clean them thoroughly while they are still alive (like within hours). I have eaten cleaned refrigerated crab after 2 days of being dead and not cooked (I cooked them after 2 days) The key indicator is a smell of ammonia. If you get that smell, don't bother. I am a crabber, I just got off the water. I am crabbing 5 days a week on the side :0
Cooked crab lasts about 5 days refrigerated.

The duration in which cooked crab can be kept in the fridge especially if it is fresh from the water is 3 to 5 days. It is advisable that the crab be refrigerated two hours after it has been cooked for it to be well preserved. Visit http://www.stilltasty.com/fooditems/index/16983 for more information.

I would freeze it before 24 hours and discard after 48.
