USDA/FSIS RIN: 0583-AD36 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Mandatory Inspection of Catfish and Catfish Products 
Abstract: The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-246, sec. 11016), known as the 2008 Farm Bill, amended the Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) to make catfish an amenable species under the FMIA. Amenable species must be inspected, so this rule will define inspection requirements for catfish. The regulations will define "catfish" and the scope of coverage of the regulations to apply to establishments that process farm-raised species of catfish and to catfish and catfish products.
