    Most likely fatal, however I'll dispose of it for you. I would eat it if the seal is good.

    Absolutely. As AGL notes, if the seal is good, the fish should be fine.

    I concur with yes. I can fish every year but I have eaten some that was 3 and 4 years old. I always check the top to see if it is bulged upward or if it is still sucked down. I also listen for the hiss as I open it up telling me that it was sealed correctly. This is just a good habit if the jars are only 2 or 3 days old or if they are 2 or 3 years old.

    I only feed it to my favorite mooching bro-in-law. In fact, I make a pile of my oldest first and feed him every chance he mooches. I'm still waiting on "good" results. That is with canned fish up to 4 years old. Just make sure all jars are stored in a closet, out of sunrays and excessive heat.
    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    I've got some from 2000 that I don't plan on tossing
    I keep it in the garage (cool) in the case (out of the light)

    if the seal is intact it should be good

    of course if you don't see any posts from me in a few months maybe you'll know what happened

    Yeah, two year old canned fish is alright. Just make sure that the seal is good and you'll have nothing to worry about.

    Ate some 11 year old canned sockeye this year. The next morning, everything was fine!

    Sealed jars should have a shelflife of 10 years or more.
    Now what ?
