Catfish Quiche

Mississippi Farm Raised Catfish is a source of pride on our family farms.  There are 160 family farms raising catfish.  They brought in $164 million value of production in 2018 to our state’s economy.

Be sure to read the label to make sure you are getting Mississippi Farm Raised Catfish instead of inferior fish from other countries that have invaded our local food markets.

Only U.S. Farm Raised Catfish are grown using high quality standards and safe practices.
