U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is raised in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Although "born" in the South, it's truly the all-American fish and is available nationwide all year long. Its firm texture keeps it from flaking or falling apart, making it ideal for the grill.And the mild, slightly sweet flavor of the American-grown product quickly absorbs the flavors of marinades, spices, and salsas. U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is delicious, safe, and easy to cook. You're Gonna Love It.
