How to Store Oysters

Store live oysters in a shallow container (not airtight) lined with moistened paper towels. Discard oysters that are not closed or don’t close when tapped. To maximize freshness when storing shucked oysters keep in the refrigerator between 33 and 40 degrees F. You can also put the packed oysters in a container packed with ice in the refrigerator.
