- How do you store seafood and keep it fresh?
Keeping seafood in the refrigerator is the best storage method to keep your seafood fresh. 34°F-38°F degrees is the ideal temperature zone. For every degree over 40°F, you may lose valuable shelf life on your seafood.
- How long can I keep seafood once I bring it home?
Your seafood should last 3-5 days under proper refrigeration, but it is always best the same day or day after your purchase.
- Can I freeze the seafood I don't use?
If you will not use your seafood within the appropriate time frame, you may freeze seafood. Adelphia recommends putting the seafood in a container and then fill that with water. This will help keep the seafood from becoming freezer burned.
- How do I know my fish is done cooking?
The safest way to determine if your seafood is ready to eat is by monitoring its temperature. Seafood should be cooked to an internal temperature of 150°F at it's thickest point. For stuffed seafood, internal temperature should be 165°F at the thickest point of the stuffing. For items like clams and mussels, they are finished cooking when the shells open and meat is exposed. Discard any unopened clams or mussels. Color is also a good indicator of when your seafood is ready to eat. The seafood will no longer be opaque inside. Fish will also flake easily with a fork when finished cooking.
- What is the difference between wild and farm raised seafood?
Wild seafood is seafood that is found living in its natural habitat in the oceans and rivers of the world. Man does not play a role in the growth of wild salmon.
Farm raised seafood, also known as aquaculture, uses a variety of methods to grow fish and shellfish in ocean or fresh water. Currently, 1/3 of the world's seafood supply is farm raised. This percentage is expected to grow over time due to the increased demand for seafood that cannot be met by the wild seafood availability alone.
