USDA Catfish Inspection Programme Repealed

17 May 2013

US - The National Fisheries Institute (NFI) applauded the House Agriculture Committee for repealing the duplicative USDA catfish inspection programme.

The Committee chose sound fiscal policy and a commitment to grow rural economies by protecting trading opportunities in export markets for American farm products.

The NFI also congratulated the Committee on the passage of a 2013 Farm Bill. To move such a complex piece of legislation, balancing investments that support American Farmers and related food industries with necessary cost savings is a major accomplishment.

NFI is the leading trade association for the fish and seafood industry whose members represent a variety of businesses ranging from the water to the table.
