#1 "Catfish farmers have tried to argue that we need a catfish inspection office to ensure Americans are eating safe and healthy catfish,"
The REAL reason Catfish "farmers" need a USDA link is for the free boodle! Getting paid for NOT farming fishing. [See Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) the decades old USDA "Land Bank" soil retirement swindle]

Recently visited with an old friend who's wife still works at a USDA office as a clerk processing farmer CRP claims. She mentioned the irony of client small talk in her office centering around the price of Texas Sweet Crude [oil lease royalty checks], as opposed to the CRP [money for not farming] entitlement program.
