Many thanks to Claire Thompson, executive director of the Farmory in downtown Green Bay. She along with Annie Schmitz, hatchery technician, and Emma Ray, hatchery intern, led Green Bay West Rotary members on a virtual tour and update on the status of operations since our last visit – and wow, have things really developed! Things including the building which received a major facelift with cladding on the exterior and soon will feature a sculpture focal point; things including fish!! – yellow perch to be exact, which are now for sale; and community education, including a series of webinars featuring aquaculture experts to help individuals start their own aquaculture operations. What a treasure for Northeast Wisconsin to support this one-of-a-kind organization devoted to sustainable healthy food resources for our community. Learn more at
