INDIANA, US - Bell Aquaculture has completed construction of its corporate headquarters and processing facilities in Redkey, Indiana.

Redkey, IN – January 15, 2009 – Bell Aquaculture, owner and operator of the nation’s largest yellow perch (Perca flavescens) farm, has completed build out of its corporate headquarters and processing facilities in Redkey, Indiana. Darien (Illinois)-based Wight & Company, began work on the 28,000-square-foot Redkey construction project in July, four months after Bell Aquaculture announced its launch in March.

The announcement is made by Michael Miller, Bell Aquaculture President & COO, who says construction was completed on schedule in Redkey; the complex is about five miles from the fish farm production facilities in Albany.

“Our new Redkey complex is a fully functioning processing center for the Bell Perch™ received from the Albany facility. The newly harvested fish will be processed and packaged as breaded and unbreaded fillets, being ready for shipment within 48 hours of harvest,” explains Miller. “It’s unique that we process our own harvested fish, thereby maintaining vertical integration and control over every step of the process from ‘farm to fork.’”
