Catfish producers manage for profit
Mississippi’s catfish farmers continue to address production challenges as the industry works to reclaim markets lost to imported fish.
Jeremy Robbins, vice president of The Catfish Institute based in Jackson, said farmers have struggled in recent years with high feed prices, their No. 1 expense, while dealing with increased competition from imports.
“There is no denying the quality of our product. We have the safest, healthiest aquaculture product on the market,” he said. “With current market conditions, we are working with all segments of our industry to develop new and innovative tools and marketing initiatives to drive sales. We are also working with state lawmakers across the South to ensure that consumers are informed at the final point of sale about where their catfish is grown.”
