Supplement your menu with catfish in a number of interesting entrées and your diners will quickly add it to their favorite seafood list.

Ecologically responsible aquaculture

Catfish farmed in the U.S. are considered one of the most sustainable fish species available. Most farms are found on the Mississippi Delta with some production in Alabama, Arkansas and Louisiana. They are farmed in closed, recirculating freshwater ponds that prevent any waste pollution or invasive species spread. Their diet is highly efficient and relies on soybeans, corn and rice rather than the less environmentally friendly fishmeal and fish oil alternatives. The Food and Drug Administration regulates farming and catfish are one of the most quality-controlled products in the food industry. These factors have combined to create one of America’s most popular seafood items.
