On the menu in Mississippi: More disclosure about catfish origins

By: Magnolia Tribune - April 10, 2008

The Sun Herald, 4/9/8

A new Mississippi law will require restaurants to disclose whether the catfish they serve is imported or raised in the United States.

Gov. Haley Barbour signed a bill Tuesday, and it becomes law July 1.

If a restaurant sells imported catfish, its menu will have to include that information, and the letters will have to be the same typeface and size as the listing for the catfish dish.

The new regulation is the latest move to protect the catfish industry from Asian imports.
