I live in northern Ohio, the Lake Erie perch country. Very expensive, like 9.00 lb----however this winter I discovered Tilapia. I do not care for strong fish, hense the perch, however i will never pay the price for Lake perch again. Tilapia is wonderful, not strong and a "fish fry for the neighbors" works (with tilapia)----bring it on, and only 3.85 for a package. Frozen, but that is fine.
