UWM Research Report: 'Fish farming's future'

Quoting from the article in UWM's 2012 Research Report:
"When operators of Bell Aquaculture decided to add yellow perch, the Midwest’s fish-fry favorite, to the company’s product line, they initially came up empty-handed.

'We went looking for the fingerlings on the marketand we couldn’t find them,' says Bell President Norman McCowan. 'So we knew early on we would have to partner with someone.'

They chose wisely. In Fred Binkowski, they found an aquaculture specialist who offered perch-raising techniques available nowhere else in the world. Today, Bell Aquaculture runs the nation’s largest yellow perch farm and is in the middle of an expansion of its perch enterprise."
