Bluegill could be commercialized for food markets

I recently got this email alert concerning using Bluegill for commercial use. I know it is illegal to sell bluegill, so to read this piece really got my attention. Catfish is locally farmed and sold, so in the near future you might start seeing bluegill along side catfish at your local meat market. Bluegill for Commercial Use

Hi Bill. I suppose that if they are raised in an aquaculture environment it would be OK with me. If they taste like Tilapia, I'd buy them.

In my opinion the gills are much better than the Tilapia. They are really outstanding baked. Thanks for the comment

I wonder why they wouldn't choose crappie over bluegill. Maybe they think the name would turn people off.

Crappie would be better than bluegill. Here is a website that sells bluegill and other freshwater fish. Thanks for the comment
