Country of Origin Labeling for Mississippi catfish

It's always interesting!  Julie McLemore, who works for the state of Mississippi alerted me to this bit of news.

Effective today, Mississippi restaurants offering catfish for sale must indicate the country of origin of the catfish on the menu. The law is administered by the MS Department of Agriculture and carries administrative fines for noncompliance.

The Jackson, Mississippi, Clarion Ledger website contains a slightly more complete account. I have to admit that I would have assumed catfish to be local, but The Catfish Institute has complained about imported catfish for some time, and some catfish imports have been rejected because of illegal drugs.

Here's the bill text.
