National Catfish Day
When : Always June 25th
It's National Catfish Day. It's a day to enjoy some tasty, fried catfish. Or, enjoy catfish cooked to your favorite recipe......yummy.
Guess who said: "More and more Americans are discovering a uniquely American food delicacy -- farm-raised catfish." For the author, read on below to the "Origin of National Catfish Day".
You should have no doubt what to do today. Enjoy a plateful of catfish, cooked anyway you want. Chances are, you will eat farm raised catfish, which supplies the vast majority of catfish to the U.S. market. But, wouldn't it be much more fun to fish in the morning, and catch the catfish you will eat?
