BEMIDJI, Minn. - A little more than six months after opening, The Marvelous Fish House has decided to close, owner Marv Hanson said Wednesday in a news release.

The Marvelous Fish House opened in May, offering fresh walleye from Red Lake Fisheries and wild rice from Red Lake Nation Foods.

Born in Red Lake, Hanson aimed to offer jobs to his fellow American Indians.

"It's a shame," Hanson said in the release. "We had a great summer, we created jobs for people that otherwise would not have been given a chance and we had a good product from the local area. I gave it all I had and it just didn't happen."

Barring any last-minute development, Hanson said the business will close permanently.
