In a world where practicing environmental responsibility is becoming increasingly more important, many consumers are searching for ways to elevate the sustainability aspect of their shopping lists. Incorporating more sustainably sourced protein options, such as U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish, can ease your environmental concerns and satisfy your palate.
Heartland Catfish Company is one of the largest vertically integrated fisheries in the U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish industry, and prides itself on providing a healthy, sustainable seafood option to grocery stores and restaurants. By utilizing man-made, freshwater ponds, Heartland eliminates groundwater pollution exposure, creates safe artificial wetland habitats and avoids contributing to the overfishing of natural lakes and rivers.
Heartland Catfish sources 50% of annually processed catfish from the same property that the processing facility resides on, reducing carbon emissions from additional transportation. The rest of the 50% of processed catfish is from select partner-farmers in Texas, the Arkansas Delta, Mississippi Delta and the Black Belt Prairie Region of Mississippi and Alabama, keeping supply regional and reducing emissions as much as possible.
