Q:

How long should you keep crab legs in the freezer?

A:

Crab legs remain fresh and safe to eat for up to 3 months in a freezer. They must be packaged properly to maintain the best quality.

Fresh crab spoils quickly. If it is to be frozen, crab should be cooked, wrapped and put into the freezer without delay. Cooked crab legs should be placed in a heavy plastic bag specifically designed for freezer storage. The bag should be labeled with the contents as well as the date it was placed into the freezer. The freezer's temperature should be between 0 degrees and -5 degrees Fahrenheit. Crab legs that have been frozen and thawed should not sit in the refrigerator. They should be used immediately.

    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.
