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 40,000 acres of catfish ponds in production.  In 2015, that was $185 million in production value to our state’s economy.   Check out our website at www.growingmississippi.org or follow us on Facebook by searching for Farm Families of Mississippi.
