How should meat be packaged for freezer? Many say it should be sealed, but I got frozen fish that is not sealed.

Is there a difference between frozen items loose in packaging and refrigerated meat (in packaging)?

I vacuum seal things to keep them for a long time. Different meats have different times you can store them for. Google it.

But why are store purchased frozen items not sealed?
Because they turn over stock quickly. It is the length of time that determines how much water vapor is drawn out of food, in addition to packaging that's air-tight. They may also have higher humidity freezers which reduces the burn rate.

I just throw raw meat into my freezer without packaging or anything. Never had a problem with it.
