Lake Erie Yellow Perch

Catanese Classic Seafood is honored to be the only company in Cleveland offloading Yellow Perch boats directly from the lake to our facility.


We at Catanese Classic Seafood are proud to be the sole wholesale seafood company in Northeast Ohio offloading Yellow Perch boats at our docks. Our prime waterfront location offers our fishermen and women a safe harbor to dock their vessels. This allows us to have control over the entire process from the boat to the customers door. Being a Trap Net fishery, the fish are alive in the nets as they are lifted onboard the fishing vessel. The Lake Erie fishery is also a true day boat fishery, as the regulations only allow fishing from dawn to dusk. The boats lift live fish onto their boats and transport them directly to our docks and into our processing plant live and kicking. That’s as fresh as possible. Our skilled fish cutters scale, and hand fillet each fish and pack in containers for daily fresh sales. Our operation also produces the finest Individually Quick Frozen fillets. Packed with care in our own Classic label 11 pound cases. Catanese Classic Seafood is truly the only choice in Northeast Ohio for the finest Lake Erie fish.
