Proclamation 5672 — National Catfish Day, June 25, 1987
By the President of the United States of America

"More and more Americans are discovering a uniquely American food delicacy — farm-raised catfish. In 1986, catfish comprised the third highest volume of finned fish consumed in the United States. Ninety-nine percent of all these catfish were farm-raised. Between 1975 and 1985, production of farm-raised catfish increased by 1200 percent... Farm-raised catfish have come a long way from their bottom-feeding ancestors. The catfish available today...are products of state-of-the-art methods of aquaculture. They thrive in clean freshwater ponds on many American farms, where they are surface-fed soybean meal, corn, fish meal, vitamins, and minerals. Farm-raised catfish not only furnish American consumers with a tasty delicacy but also provide a nutritious, low-calorie source of protein that is also low in cholesterol. In recognition of the value of farm-raised catfish, the Congress...has designated June 25, 1987, as 'National Catfish Day' and authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation in its observance. Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim June 25, 1987, as National Catfish Day. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities."
~ Ronald Reagan
