Abstract

Walleye is a prized sport and food fish and is often on the menu of white tablecloth restaurants throughout the Great Lakes/ North Central Region (NCR) of the U.S. Commercial fisheries for walleye in the Canadian portion of Lake Erie, inland lakes in Canada, and a few tribal fisheries in U.S. These sources provide fish that are distributed by brokers for retail food chains and restaurants. The Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation (FFMC) of Winnipeg, Canada, purchases 7 to 11 million lbs (3.2 to 5 million kg) of walleye each year, and then processes, packages, and markets them to the U.S. The FFMC purchases most fish from Aboriginal fishers.
