Mississippi Farm Raised Catfish
With inferior fish from other countries invading local food markets, be sure to read the label to make sure you are getting Mississippi Farm Raised Catfish. Only U.S. Farm Raised Catfish are grown using high quality standards and safe practices.
Mississippi has 48,600 acres of catfish ponds in production. In 2013, that was $178 million in production value to our state's economy.
