Raised in clean, man-made ponds filled with natural spring water, U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish is an environmentally friendly fish. There's always a steady supply without any fear of depleting the oceans or a need to be concerned about mercury levels. A special diet ensures that these catfish have a consistent mild, slightly sweet flavor. Also, this lean fish is an excellent source of protein and contains omega-3 fatty acids. According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, moderate fish consumption – one or two meals a week – is important in a heart-healthy diet. U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish makes a perfect choice for healthy family meals.
