Maintaining a healthy environment is the first and most important step to producing healthy, delicious U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish. From locally sourced feed to low food miles, our sustainability standards are high – and now they’re USDA-certified. Our certification program ensures safe, eco-friendly farming processes from pond to table.
We feed our catfish an environmentally friendly diet. All ingredients are sourced locally, supporting soybean and grain farms. Very little fishmeal or fish oil is used.
Catfish are processed within an hour after harvest and quickly transported to local restaurants and grocery stores.
Catfish farms conserve water and energy by raising crops for 10 to 15 years without draining the water from ponds and using highly efficient management practices.
Channel catfish are native to the Mississippi River Basin (and delicious). This catfish has been a staple of Southern cuisine for generations.
Catfish farmers have made a total economic impact of $1.9 billion with over 9,000 jobs created throughout Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas.
We’re always working to enhance the efficiencies of our farming process. That’s why we host the Catfish Research Symposium and sponsor on-farm trials for constant improvement.
