Red Lake Band plans commercial fishing

Email

An economic development grant of $1 million from the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community will allow the Red Lake Nation to open a commercial walleye processing operation this summer.

Red Lake Chairman Floyd "Buck" Jourdain Jr. said the band plans to open the Redby fish processing plant in June. Rather than selling their fish in the round, Red Lake members will get a better price by filleting and freezing the catch themselves.
