How to Safely Store Seafood

Matt Caudle

Put seafood on ice or in the refrigerator or freezer soon after buying it, using these guidelines for safe storage:

  • If seafood will be used within two days after purchase, store it in the refrigerator.
  • If seafood won’t be used within two days after purchase, wrap it tightly in moisture-proof freezer paper or foil to protect it from air leaks, and store it in the freezer.

We recommend purchasing your seafood on the day you plan to eat it, for maximum freshness! Do you live in Waterloo Region? We now offer delivery, just in time for your next dinner party!
