I bought a net of mussels this afternoon planning to cook them tonight. However something came up and I won't be cooking them until tomorrow night now. The net had been put into a plastic bag which is currently in a bowl at the bottom of my fridge but how best should I store them? ie take them out of the plastic bag, keep them in the net and leave them open to the air in the bowl?
Thanks.

Take them out of the plastic bag for a start. Is there a use-by date on the label of the net? If so, look at it and don't use mussels after the use-by date.

Thanks diddly - I have had a good look online and can see that what I have done seems to be ok.
The use by date is tomorrow which is ok. I have taken them out of the plastic bag, kept them in the net bag, put them in a bowl and covered them with a clean, cold, damp tea towel.
It will be a good sign tomorrow if some are open, and if they don't close when I tap them tomorrow then I'll chuck them.
