Ever wonder where the eels at the sushui and Korean restaurants around Montgomery County, PA, come from? I wonder if they come from this fascinating place, which was featured in the Business section of yesterday's Philadelphia Inquirer. The following information is from the article. The company started in South Philly. Its current headquarters is this 15,000 square-foot warehouse served by a 300-foot deep well, where the water is plentiful and 56 degrees, which is ideal for the eels that are trucked in from Florida to Canada, and then packed live for export. There are 23 one thousand gallon tanks. In a season it handles 250,000 eels (50,000 pounds), from 12 inches to 30 inches. A glimpse at its Website reveals that it is about a lot more seafood than just eels.
