Question: Can you refreeze fish?


Yes, fish that has been thawed in the refrigerator can safely be refrozen. To preserve freshness, refreeze your fish within a few days of thawing.

Note: Refrozen fish may be slightly drier than usual. This is due to the second thawing cycle.

To learn more about refreezing foods, refer to the USDA website:
