Re:Farm raised Catfish vs. Mother Natures brand?
Growth hormones are not used in U.S. farm raised catfish, but most of the farm raised catfish sold in the United States comes from Asia. The only Asian catfish allowed to be labeled as catfish come from China, and in China the fish are fed antibiotics. The other Asian catfish, mostly from Vietnam and not actual catfish but a similar species, are raised in river water which is oten contaminated with, among other things, human feces.
Me? I'll stick with channel cats I catch, thank you.
