Q: What are the benefits of aquaculture?
A: Aquaculture can provide an economical, year-round supply of seafood that does not deplete the available stocks of wild fish.
Q: What is the definition of sustainable seafood?
A: The answer to this question depends on whom you ask. Some people believe the sustainability is simply responsible use of resources and adhering to food safety, while others believe it means something that “is doable forever.” The US is following Europe’s lead on developing standards and implementing certification processes for various fisheries and aquaculture facilities to qualify as sustainable.
Q: How can I learn more about Bell’s farming practices?
A: See our Stewardship section to find information on food, water use and other factors concerning how we raise our fish. Though no standards have currently been set for organic fish, we believe we will qualify when they are, as nothing unnatural is used in the rearing of our fish.
Q: What does Bell Perch™ Yellow Perch taste like?
A: Bell Perch™ Yellow Perch (yellow perch – Perca flavescens) is a sweet, mild, freshwater fish with a slightly flaky white flesh when cooked. There is no “fishy” taste; yellow perch has been compared to species such as walleye.
Q: Can I take a tour of Bell Aquaculture?
A: Because we are dedicated to operating an optimal facility for farm-raised Bell Perch™ Yellow Perch, the health of our fish is essential.
