Storing Fresh Seafood for a Day or Two

Philly Ray | Dec 13, 2008 05:43 PM

I am in charge of my family's Christmas Eve Seven Fishes Dinner this year and I would really rather not have to purchase all of the items on Christmas Eve because my local seafood store will be packed to the gills (hee hee).

So I wanted to ask if I purchase shrimp, scallops, calamari, and mussels a day or two ahead of time, what would be the safest way to store them?

Can they stay in the fridge?

Should I pack them in a cooler with ice (adding ice as needed)?

Any other ideas?

Thanks
