I have found packages in my freezer that are three or four years old.....Frozen in water or vacuum sealed.  They were fine....Tasted good.  As long as there is no freezer burn it should be good.

I always seemed to get freezer burn with the vacuum seal on fish. Had the best luck with freezing in water making sure none of the filets are outside of the water exposed to the side of the ziplock freezer bag . 2 years MAX. 1
Year is best

Last weekend I cooked a package of Bluegill fillets I found buried deep in the freezer that were dated 12/12. They were as good as any I have eaten before. My Wife and Grandkids inhaled them. I just cleaned, rinsed well, and patted them dry. Vac sealed them and into the freezer. I have no problem with fish that's been properly frozen that's a couple years or more old.

I vac seal , I try and eat mine up within a year but have eaten after 2 years and they were fine , I use to freeze in water with the same results but it did take up a little more room ,
