I wouldn't think the texture of the fish would survive freezing--but I have never tried it. The purpose of smoking and pickling was to preserve the fish in pre-refrigeration days. The smoked mackerel should keep for quite a while, and I believe the matjes will as well--they are either brined in salt or preserved with vinegar to ensure storage longevity.
