"'Perch were born to be fried,' said Fred P. Binkowski, a senior scientist of fisheries biology with the University
of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Great Lakes Water Institute. Mr. Binkowski provides Sweet Water and similar operations with technical
assistance and baby perch that he breeds under research agreements with the companies.
One company he works with
is Bell Aquaculture LLC, an indoor fish farm built in a former farm field near Muncie, Ind.
Bell has invested some
$50 million and has been raising perch for three years. It sells about two million fish a year to restaurants and food distributors,
said Norman McCowan, president and chief executive. The closely held company expects to turn its first profit next year and
eventually produce six million perch annually."Link to the article
