Catfish The New Cash Cow?

All kinds of products are farmed right here in Eastern Carolina, including Catfish. And those in the industry say it's the next big potential money making industry in our state. In North Carolina the aquaculture industry is often looked at as a way for current farmers to diversify their business. Catfish farmer and biologist Tim Blevins says the aquaculture industry is a solid occupation which can also be very profitable. Blevins raises about 200,000 pounds of catfish annually which bring in more than $140,000 at the market.
