Posted by Karen Hales on Aug 13 2019

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.

Deanie’s Tells the Tail of Four Types of Gulf Shrimp

Unlike other seafood, not all shrimp are created equal. There are almost as many different species of shrimp in the Gulf of Mexico as there are ways to cook shrimp. You can find brown, white, and pink shrimp in Louisiana waters for grilling, boiling, or frying and seabob shrimp, which is especially good for marinating. These species of shrimp —collectively known as "Gulf Shrimp’"—come almost exclusively from the Gulf of Mexico with 97 percent of domestic shrimp harvested in the United States coming from the Gulf.
