Spring 2011 Issue: My Indiana Home Features Bell Aquaculture: "Go Fish"

Quoting from the Indiana Farm Bureau article by Cris Goode for the Bureau's member publication:

"Hoosiers might be surprised to find that Bell – located right here in Indiana – is the nation’s largest yellow perch farm. Bell’s indoor production facilities are located in Albany, Ind., just north of Muncie. 'We chose to raise yellow perch for two reasons: the high demand for the popular fish and the limited supply available,' says Norman McCowan, president of Bell. Raising fish from its own 'broodstock' – or breeding stock – to processing and packaging on-site,Bell is unique in its commitment and ability to have a hand in the entire process from beginning to end."
