Column: Sewer trout business coming to Kinston
May 2009 - 8:11 PM
While the hopes of jobs from the likes of Sanderson Foods and Spirit AeroSystems have left Kinstonians twisting in the wind, a new company is preparing to set up shop in our town.
On Wednesday, Canadian-based Sewer Trout Enterprises is expected to announce plans to build a fishery within the city limits.
"Sewer trout are very popular in Canada," said company Vice President Jeffrey Runyon. "We believe Kinston is a good place to see how Americans will react to our business model."
Sewer trouting's origins can be traced to Montreal in the 1980s. When young people from rural areas of Canada migrated to metropolitan areas for colleges and careers, they missed the ice fishing days of their youth.
