A whitefish shortage hitting the Great Lakes region is causing trouble for Jewish families this Passover holiday, when the fish is a key ingredient in the traditional Jewish dish of gefilte fish. Chicago and Detroit markets reported difficulty filling orders, and a commercial fishing agency said the fish shortfall was being felt as far as New York. A particularly cold winter is partly to blame, leaving over 90 percent of the Great Lakes surface frozen and in some cases commercial fishing boats stuck in port. The gefilte fish dish is similar to meat loaf. The fish is typically ground up and combined with onions, carrots, eggs and bread crumbs.
