Perch at a premium for Lent

Lenten Friday fish fries around Door and Kewaunee counties will serve up some fish species in abundance while others will be limited.  Yellow perch are a popular Friday night fare outside of the 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.  Charlie Henriksen, owner of Henriksen Fisheries in Sister Bay, says fish will become more popular during Lent as more people abstain from eating meat.  He says the demand for perch will exceed the supply, though whitefish will be plentiful.

 


Henriksen adds that whitefish is popular during the Jewish holidays of Passover, Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah.
