Who we are

We have been providing freshwater walleye to America since 1919. Our business started during the First World War to bring a healthy food supply to American Troops and again in World War II. In 1929 the fishery was in full operation by the Red Lake Band of Ojibwe and distributed all over the United States. Red Lake Walleye became world famous.

As Native Americans we have a strong connection with our traditions, respecting nature's waters and foods from the Earth. The use of these teachings have been part of our everyday lives for generations.

Our wild fish products share more than an amazing taste of where we come from. They illustrate to the buyer our Native American culture by teaching o
ur ways of balance and harmony in our sustainable practices.

As a company owned and operated by the Red Lake Band of Ojibwe we use our knowledge of the Red Lakes to your advantage. Our fish products are wild caught by tribal fishermen using the wisdom from our elders to harvest in a sustainable manner. We understand the benefits of natural foods and include that value into the preparation of our fillets done by hand.
