WE HAVE WORKED CONSTANTLY FOR THE PAST 35 YEARS DEVELOPING A SPECIAL BREED OF CHANNEL CATFISH THAT WILL PRODUCE HIGHER YIELDS AND A FASTER GROWTH.

WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED THIS BY SELECTIVE CROSS-BREEDING AND HAND PICKING OUR BROOD STOCK FROM EIGHT DIFFERENT FAMILIES OF HIGH YIELDERS AND FAST GROWERS FROM ACROSS THE UNITED STATES.

MANY HATCHERIES IN-BREED STOCK WITHIN THE SAME FAMILY; WHICH PRODUCES AN INFERIOR OFF-SPRING. WE HAVE EXPENDED EXTRA TIME AND EXPENSE TO PREVENT IN-BREEDING OUR BROOD STOCK.
