Dark fuzz on dried anchovies??

Help!! I just opened up my box of dried anchovies to find them covered with a dark brown fuzz. My mom just told me I should have refrigerated them, but since they were dried, I didnt think it likely that they would spoil.. I also just noticed the "Best by" date, which passed in Feb. Can dried anchovies go bad?? Should I throw the box out? (And it was painfully expensive too T_T)
