I have kept it for 1 day in the fridge and haven't noticed any problems. Curious to see what others say.

I don't suggest keeping it thawed for more than a couple of hours, unless your fridge is no more than 2¬ļC, and even then, a day is pushing it. Because Mysids are such coldwater shrimp, they begin to decompose rather quickly. Trust me, I import over 800 lbs of frozen mysids yearly.
