Bell Aquaculture Announces Breaded Yellow Perch Product Line & Launches Bell Perch(TM) Online Ordering System

February 8, 2010

REDKEY, Ind., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire/ — Bell Aquaculture, owner and operator of the nation’s largest yellow perch (Perca flavescens) farm, is rolling out its breaded yellow perch line and launching the Bell Perch(TM) Online Ordering System. The announcement is made by Norman McCowan, President & CEO, who says for the past year Bell Perch has only been available through restaurant partners and various public sales and special events, such as the Purdue Ag Alumni Fish Fry.

Bell will continue to form restaurant partnerships and participate in special events, but now consumers will be able to purchase both breaded yellow perch fillets and Cajun nuggets at http://www.bellperch.com. Here’s more information about Bell Perch breaded products, now available in five or 20 pound orders (unbreaded fillets will be available in the near future):

  • Frozen Breaded Fillets: Bell’s breaded yellow perch fillets, with a slightly lemon pepper taste – just like we used to have before overfishing of lakes and environmental perils.
  • Cajun Nuggets: The spicy kick of Cajun seasoning paired with the sweet taste of Bell Perch.

The newly harvested fish only travel five miles to be processed and are quickly frozen to maintain flavor and freshness. It’s unique that Bell processes its own harvested fish, thereby maintaining vertical integration and control over every step of the process from “farm to fork.”

Further, according to McCowan: “The yellow perch we’re raising, the Bell Perch, is a higher quality product from the standpoint that there is no possibility of contaminants entering into the food chain during their growth.”

Yellow perch is one of the most popular of all North American pan fish. There’s no taste difference from wild-caught like some other farmed species. In years past, yellow perch was the fish typically served at Friday Night Fish Fries in the Great Lakes region, particularly during Lent (the period prior to Easter).
