Blue Catfish

…is Beating Up The Bay

  • While Blue Catfish were first introduced to The Chesapeake Bay in the ‘70s as a sport fish, they’ve become a threat to the waterway since they’re now ubiquitous and invasive
  • They prey on native fish species and vegetation, including Maryland Blue Crab
  • Because of their vast population and voracious appetites, they pose a serious threat to the fragile Chesapeake Bay ecosystem

So We Teamed Up with The Wide Net Project…

  • The Wide Net Project aims to reduce the vast numbers of Blue Catfish in the Bay while simultaneously improving healthy food access for underserved communities
  • One pound purchased at MOM’s = two portions donated to regional hunger relief organizations
  • 5000+ portions were donated in 2017!
