Learn About High Quality Catfish
As Mark Twain once said, “The catfish is plenty good enough fish for anyone.” Farm-raised catfish is one of the most affordable, environmentally sustainable sources of high-quality protein available to American consumers today. U.S. farm-raised catfish has been one of the top 10 most-consumed seafoods in the United States for the past 20 years.
Catfish is by far the widest produced freshwater fish in the country, and farm-raised catfish is the largest aquaculture in the United States. Ninety-four percent of all U.S. farm-raised catfish is raised in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi, and catfish contributes about $4 billion per year to each of the state's economies.
