    Passive?

    Hello everyone,
    I have come across this example in a quiz and I am not sure how to "tackle" it in my class:
    "Kept in the fridge, fish should stay fresh for two or three days". Is this example a passive structure and/or a kind of conditional sentence?
    Thank you

    It's conditional "(If it is) kept in the fridge, fish should stay fresh..."
