National Catfish Day
Did you know that President Reagan issued a Presidential Proclamation in 1987 that issued today June 25th as National Catfish Day? Today, we celebrate catfish and its growing popularity in America. This delectable fish can be prepared in numerous ways, so don't go through the day without at least trying a sample!
U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is a lean fish and an excellent source of protein. It is low in saturated (bad) fat and is a moderate source of polyunsaturated (good) fat and omega-3 fatty acids.
Ninety-four percent of all U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is raised in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi, in freshwater ponds filled with clean and clear well water. The National Audubon Society, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Environmental Defense all recommend U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish as a safe environmental choice.
