    Those bass filets were not great table fare to begin with. Toss them or risk tossing them after you eat them.

    Fact: Seafood starts a spoiling process as soon as it is removed from the water. That is the reason for commercial freezer boats. The degree of spoilage is determine by species, time, and temperature. Commercially, seafood is often flash frozen, thawed and re-flash frozen. The trick is in the flash freezing which is instant. Slow freezing in a home freezer after it has already been thawed can break down the texture of the flesh as OH suggested. But the real concern was what temperature the refrigerator kept the fish at during the thawed time period. Different places in a refrigerator will have different temperatures and how often the door is opened will also effect the temperatures. Most vegetables are best kept at 47 degrees F while most red meats are best kept around 41 degrees F. Thus most refrigerators are set somewhere in those two ranges, but most seafood needs around 36 degrees F or below to best keep. That is why I add ice to a pan of fish filets even in my fridge. Fish filets will definitely keep for several weeks if they are kept cold enough so if the filets were kept in an area of your fridge that was cold enough, they would be safe to eat, but after re-freezing, the quality of the fish would be in serious question.

    Do Not learn this lesson the hard way! You will probably have some explosive stuff coming out of both ends at the same time! Not a pleasant experience.

    Refreezing it and then cooking might take care of all the bacterial issues. But I'm betting the stuff would taste like mush anyway after being frozen twice and soaking in water that long. Blech!

    I wouldn't risk it, but I guess if you really wanted to eat it you could cook it to oblivion.

    Hi...


    I can't tell you for a fact whether or not they're still good to eat...but why take chances...??


    If they were in my frige/freezer, I'd get rid of them post haste.
