Q:

How long does a shrimp last in the freezer?

A:

Shrimp can last in the freezer for six to eight months past the sell-by date. The storage time is the same for fresh shrimp as open or cooked shrimp.

If shrimp is canned or has been open or cooked, it stays fresh in the refrigerator for five to seven days. Once shrimp has been cooked, it should be placed in an airtight container to maintain freshness. Freezer-safe containers or freezer bags are best for storing shrimp in the freezer. If the shrimp becomes slimy to the touch and develops a fishy odor, it has gone bad and should be thrown away.

    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.
