DETAILS ABOUT OUR RED LAKE WALLEYE
THE RED LAKE WALLEYE STORY
• With a shared commitment to sustainability, environmental stewardship, food safety and quality, FINFISH Direct is pleased to offer Minnesota's famous Red Lake wild-caught Walleye as a member of their freshwater fish family of products.
• Guided by ancient traditions, aided and advanced by the most modern techniques, the Red Lake Fishery is closely aligned with the Red Lake Nation Department of Natural Resources, employing scientific methods to track and preserve the fish populations.
• The fish are wild-caught by tribal fishermen, employing local knowledge and ancestral practices to deliver the finest, freshest, hand-filleted product …all prepared with respect for the environment.
• Apart from helping the environment, the tribal-owned Red Lake Fishery helps the local economy grow, supporting more than 400 fishers and their families.
• The Red Lake Nation Indian Reservation covers more than 1 million square miles in Northern Minnesota. Red Lake itself is the 6th largest natural freshwater lake in all the USA, providing freshwater walleye to America since 1919. It began 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 is considered by many to be the “Finest Walleye in the World.”
• These delicious freshwater fish are popular throughout Canada and the United States for their sweet, white flesh and versatility.
• Processed and individually quick frozen with hours of catch, you can be serving these for dinner just days from now!
Because of the perishable nature of frozen fish, at this point we offer shipping via UPS 2 days per week.
Packed in a styrofoam cooler with dry ice, our goal is to provide our quality fish to you in their current frozen state.

Our 100% all natural Promise
Like all of the FINFISH DIRECT fish, they are 100% natural, with no additives, preservatives or chemicals.
How to Cook
PREMIUM • WILD-cAUGHT • 100% NATURAL • ETHICALLY-SOURCED
NO CHEMICALS, NO ADDITIVES
The majority of fish on the market has STPP (Sodium Tripolyphosphate) added prior to freezing in order to retain moisture, which results in an increased fillet size and shrinkage when cooked. STPP is a chemical, used in cleaning products, detergents, soaps, paints, ceramics.
THERE IS NO STPP ADDED TO ANY OF OUR FISH, EVER.

Finfish Direct is proud to offer only pure, natural protein. Our Red Lake Walleye is processed and frozen within hours of catch.

Great service and wonderful fish. Everyone is enjoying them. Better than catching them myself.
Overall the process and product were very good. However, when my product arrived, there was no dry ice nor any container that appeared to previously contained dry ice in the cooler. Your website video showed dry ice in a plastic bag. After riding around in Florida heat on the delivery truck, the majority of the product was still hard frozen. A few had the first 2-3 inches of tail thawed. I cut that off and the rest was fine! Fried some up the next day! Overall, no other issues.
We could not be happier!
The well packaged package arrived on time yesterday and we dived right in for dinner. It was excellent.
I no longer live up north so getting Walleye is a real treat in Florida. This is excellent fish.
