To highlight fish from the Great Lakes region, Wisconsin Sea Grant will serve Atlantic salmon and greens from Superior Fresh in Hixton and smoked whitefish from Susie Q Fish Co. in Two Rivers at the 44th annual National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fish Fry on June 5 in Washington, D.C.

The national fish fry promotes public understanding of aquaculture and commercial fisheries. Each year, it attracts up to 1,100 people who pay for a ticket to enjoy seafood samples near the National Mall at the Department of Commerce building, which is home to NOAA.
