There's a new way serve up fish in Michigan.
The Times Herald of Port Huron reports the Catch and Cook Program allows charter fishing clients to take catches to restaurants to be prepared and served.
The program was announced in May. It was established by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, state Department of Natural Resources, Michigan Charter Boat Association, Michigan Sea Grant, Michigan State University Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, and Michigan Restaurant Association.
The program aims to encourage creative, yet safe, marketing of Michigan fish. Restaurant owners and managers say they can see the benefit of the program.
