      • How to store mussels

        Live mussels should be stored in open containers in the fridge, loosely covered with clean, damp paper towels or cloths to prevent them from drying out. The optimum storage temperature is 4-8°C. Temperatures of 1°C or lower (especially freezing temperatures less than 0°C) can kill shellfish.

         

        Do not store mussels:

        In airtight containers (boxes or bags) because they need to breathe

        In water or directly on ice since the fresh water may drown them

         

        Do:

        Discard any mussels with broken or cracked shells

        Discard any mussels if the shells are open and do not close when you tap them - live shellfish will "clam up" if their shells are tapped
