    I know some folks up north that love eating pike eggs during the winter months, perch would be no different. They fried them in butter, salt and pepper.

    I treat mine just like another filet, usually about the same size.

    Just be careful not to break the sack if you can help it.

    I usually cook my perch in fish crisp so I just through the egg sacks in with that and fry em. I started eating them cause I felt a lil guilty wasting all those soon to be perch and they turned out pretty good. Even got a few buddies hooked on them now.
    I even use the bones and heads to make a stock for a spicy rum fish soup.

    Data collected by the Ministry of Environmentshow that organic contaminants are elevatedin fish eggs. Spawning Chinook Salmon, CohoSalmon, Brown Trout and Rainbow Troutwere collected from two rivers in Ontario
    to compare the contaminant levels in the skinless, boneless dorsal fillet versus the eggs.In most samples, PCBs and other organiccontaminants, such as DDT and mirex, wereelevated in the eggs, likely due to the fact
    that the eggs have a higher fat content. It isrecommended that you don’t eat eggs fromany fish species from the Great Lakes due topotentially elevated contaminant levels.

    i know this is about the great lakes .but there is contaminates in all lakes so it would apply to all lakes

    Interesting,,thanks for the info. It may be an apples and oranges comparison aside from the great lakes.Salmon and trout are more fatty and oily than perch so I wonder if that would make a difference?
