Can I keep fish I catch?

You can usually store a fish in the refrigerator for up to two days. Smaller pieces of fish will keep longer than larger pieces of fish. Lean fish have better store than fat fish. If you are not sure how long your fish should be stored, you can measure the length of the fish and divide it by the number of days you plan to store it.

For example, if you have a 10-pound panfish, and you want to keep it for two weeks, then you would divide 10 by 2, which is 2.5. This will give you the amount of time it will take to get it from the store to your table.
