The Catfish Institute (TCI) was founded in 1986 by catfish feed mills and their producer members with the goal of raising consumer awareness about the benefits of U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish. Today TCI, which represents catfish feed mills in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, conducts promotional programs throughout the United States. This non-profit corporation derives its revenues from member feed mill dues. The headquarters of TCI is in Jackson, Mississippi. From there, the President and Board of Directors of TCI monitor the industry’s growth and direction and provide information on U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish promotional activities. Throughout the years, TCI’s creative consumer advertising and public relations programs have increased awareness and demand for our 100% American catfish.
