California fish farms stock ponds, restaurants
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- If you break out the rod and reel in search of catfish in a stocked pond this summer, you may catch the product of a California fish farm.
The state's farm-raised catfish are sold to restaurants and markets, and they are also brought into recreational fishing ponds to provide a fun outlet for families.
Catfish, as well as trout, are brought into urban areas as part of the department of fish and game's fishing in the city program. The program stocks ponds in the Sacramento, San Francisco, and Los Angeles areas and organizes fishing lessons and events.
