Caviar expiry

Can someone tell me how long I can keep caviar in the fridge? I googled and I'm getting anywhere from 2-3 days to 4-5 weeks. And how can you tell if it's gone off?

  1. I wouldn't recommend relying soley on expiry dates. Go with your nose, if it smells off (fishy, potent, what caviar usually doesn't smell like) toss it. If it doesn't, taste--if it tastes different; that's right, toss it.

    If for some reason you'd rather not do those things, when in doubt throw it out.
