(WFRV) – Charlie Henriksen came to Door County as a tourist but dropped anchor to start a commercial fishing business.
For nearly 40 years, Henriksen Fisheries has wholesaled their famous white fish to restaurants and fish markets.
But, when food-related businesses shut down in 2020, they needed to find a new way to get their fish to consumers.
Here’s a look at how they pivoted and ultimately grew their impact on this vital industry.
