Recipe for Lisa Casserole, 1963

Date
1963
Description
Recipe for lisa casserole. The Florida Board of Conservation had been attempting to reform the public image of mullet by renaming it "lisa." The hope was that this would allow the Florida seafood industry to begin canning and marketing the fish to customers nationwide as an alternative to canned tuna and salmon. Mullet had a reputation as a "trash fish" in most areas outside of Florida, hence the desire to rename it. "Lisa" was a name given to some species of mullet by Spanish-speaking fishermen. This recipe was used in a lisa fish cookery demonstration put on by Bertha V. Fontaine, a home economist associated with the United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Commercial Fishing, Fish and Wildlife Service's Marketing Division.
