How long will smoked salmon keep (opened)?

I opened a vacuumed packed and refrigerated package of smoked salmon (the thin sliced kind, not the flaky kind) this past Sunday and had it for lunch yesterday and there is one small piece left and was wondering if it would be okay tomorrow (Thursday)?

    Yes, I just put those little slices of smoked pinkness (salmoness?) in a Gladlock sandwich bag, it will hold in the fridge for about a week, then it starts to get slimy.

      Plastic wrap should be fine, too, and it won't expose it to as much air.

      Janet - I usually wrap it in plastic, then put it in an air-tight container, and stick it in the back of the fridge. It'll last for a week or so (won't change color or anything)
