Red Lake Nation Fishery

Red Lake Nation Fishery

“Red Lake Nation Fishery is 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, who use 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, each one done by hand.”

BOOZHOO! Welcome to the Red Lake Nation Fishery.

We have provided freshwater walleye to America since 1919. Our business started during the First World War, when we offered a supply of healthy food to American Troops. We supplied our fresh fish once again during World War II. In 1929, the fishery was in full operation by the Red Lake Band of Ojibwe, distributing food all over the United States. Soon, Red Lake Walleye became world famous.

As Native Americans, We Have a Strong Connection with our Traditions.

We respect nature’s waters and the foods that come from the Earth. These teachings have been part of our everyday lives for generations.

We still fish in the traditional ways, using the wisdom of our elders that was handed down from generation to generation. Our fish are wild-caught by tribal fishermen. These fishermen employ local knowledge and ancestral practices to deliver quality fish products in the most natural way.
