Sweet Water Organics, Milwaukee’s urban fish and vegetable farm and Empire Fish, Milwaukee’s largest distributor of fresh seafood, announce a partnership to bring fresh perch fillets to the local market.


Press Release

Sweet Water will provide their perch to Empire on a weekly basis to be processed and released into the market. Sweet Water perch fillets will soon be found in local restaurants, groceries, and Empire Fish’s retail store. Restaurants interested in incorporating Sweet Water perch onto their menus are La Merenda, Coquette Cafe, Sanford, and Cafe Metro in the Hotel Metro. Both businesses see a growing market for this particular fish and anticipate a strong alliance.

“Partnering with a company like Empire makes sense for us because we both recognize the importance of sustainable aquaculture,” says Todd Leech, Sales Manager for Sweet Water Organics. “They are committed to providing their customers with great fresh products and we are confident in their ability to represent Sweet Water’s fish to a larger audience.”

“We firmly support [Sweet Water’s] efforts to bring sustainable aquaculture to our area and we welcome the opportunity to partner with [Sweet Water] long into the future,” said Dan Ryan, General Manager & Fresh Seafood Buyer. “We’ve [been] educating people about the need to support sustainable seafood for many years now and are glad to have another partner in the fight.”
