Wild caught, yellow lake perch is one of our most requested fish. However, sourcing yellow perch is a challenge. There are only three places within USA Great Lakes waters that allow for a commercial perch fishery: Saginaw Bay, Green Bay and Ohio. While shopping for yellow perch, I came across Taylor Fish Company
from Wheatly, Ontario. A 4th generation, family owned fishery, Taylor is admittedly the "biggest of the little guys", but has an excellent reputation for quality. Now you know me, I'm a stickler for quality and spent a lot of time on the phone with Taylor asking them about their processing operation and how they handle their fish. While I'm sure I'll cringe when the phone bill comes in, it was time well spent. Our first order arrived Wednesday night and I'm very confident that we'll be keeping yellow perch from our Canadian friends in stock for the remainder of the season.
Please remember when placing your winter order, do not count on the store being open all winter long to supply your whitefish needs. The Fish Market's winter hours are going to be based on how much fish we can fit into the Market's freezer and how The Wife and newest Little Fish are doing (Little Fish #2 is due in November).
