The catfish we most often sell is blue catfish. Blue catfish are an invasive species native to the Mississippi River Basin. These fish eat any and everything in their path. Their voracious appetite is threatening the populations of native seafood species in NC waters. The best way to help control this invasive species is to eat them!
Our catfish is caught wild in estuarine waters including the Albemarle Sound and surrounding area. These wild fish eat an equally wild diet, which gives the white fillets a mild flavor.
This dense, meaty catfish is a great option for kids. Boneless, skinless, white meat is ready to be made into tasty little catfish fingers. For adults, catfish is excellent blackened, broiled, or breaded and fried.
