Full Answer

The best short-term method for storing sushi is to wrap it tightly in plastic and place it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Any sushi that smells like fish or that is not eaten within 24 hours of preparation should not be eaten and should be discarded immediately. Sushi that has been left out at room temperature for more than a couple of hours should be discarded.
