USDA/FSIS RIN: 0583-AD36 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Mandatory Inspection of Certain Fish, Including 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, and the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Pub. L. 113-79, sec. 12106), known as the 2014 Farm Bill, amended the Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) to all fish of the order Siluriformes, including catfish, amenable under the FMIA. Amenable species must be inspected, so this rule will define inspection requirements for this type of fish, and, as required by the Agricultural Act of 2014, will take into account the conditions under which the fish is raised and transported to a processing establishment.
