Storing curry paste

I've been looking all over the package, but I don't see anything about keeping it in the fridge after opening. What's the best way to store it?

Toss it in the fridge.

If it's paste -- then fridge or feezer.

I vote with the freezer -- it will keep for ages. I also make up big batches of curry 'stew', usually vegetarian, which I freeze, then add a starch or meat or both when I thaw (hubby is diabetic, so I have to measure the starch). Indian-style (i.e., the yellow stuff) is a real staple in our house, there's always some in the freezer. Southeast Asian I make quite often as well. Those pastes last for weeks in the fridge, and much longer in the freezer.
