National Catfish Day

Man Fishing

Besides Global Smurfs Day, June 25 is also National Catfish Day. It’s time to grab the rod and reel, folks. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed this day as “National Catfish Day” to recognize the value of farm-raised catfish and people around the nation have been celebrating ever since!

Much of the farm-raised catfish in the United States comes from state-of-the-art, freshwater ponds. Catfish is the leader in the aquaculture industry. Today, catfish is a popular staple in American households.

Whether you prefer yours baked, fried or smokin’ hot off the grill, they sure are good eating! In honor of National Catfish Day, why not whip up one or two of the catfish dishes below?
