Ready for the 4-H Fair fish fry

Thursday, July 27, 2006

Jim Marshall of Neptune Foods sinks another batch of breaded fish fillets into the fryer during the Clay County Fair Tuesday.

The fish used for the fry-- all 700 pounds of it-- comes to the fair in frozen blocks. It's then cut down to size in an industrial slicer, whisked through a breading line and dropped into one of four 80-pound fryers in batches of 30-35 fillets.

Proceeds from the fish fry benefit Clay County's 4-H organization.
