Just because it says "catfish" on the label doesn't mean it's U.S. farm-raised. Actually, these days, it doesn't necessarily mean it's catfish at all. But that's about to change.

One of the most important aspects of Delta Pride catfish is the fact that it's 100% born and bred (and breaded, as the case may be) American.

As you read this, federal legislation is in the works to ensure that the catfish you buy from your grocer or distributor actually comes from the Ictaluridae family (of which U.S. farm-raised catfish is a part). Much of the product labeled "catfish" today is actually basa (from the family Pangasiidae), imported from foreign locations such as Vietnam. The fish is different and so are the farming conditions -- not to mention the government standards for quality, cleanliness and safety.

Until this legislation is passed, the best way to make sure the catfish you buy is really American and really is catfish, is simply to look for the Delta Pride brand.
