    How long does salmon keep in the freezer?

    A:

    Fresh salmon can be safely stored in the freezer for up to 2 months after the date of purchase, provided freezer temperatures do not rise above 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Salmon, along with other types of fatty fish, typically have much shorter life spans in the freezer than lean fish such as cod and flounder. While lean fish and fatty fish can last from 3-4 days in the refrigerator, fatty fish should be discarded from the freezer after 2 months, while lean fish meat can be safely stored for up to 6 months.
