The rich waters of Mississippi nurture many indigenous species including shrimp, oysters, crab and finfish. Seafood harvested from the Gulf of Mexico has proven to be the safest seafood in the world for consumption, routinely passing FDA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) tests with flying colors. Fresh, wild Mississippi Seafood from the teeming gulf waters has supported many generations of fishermen and is a sustainable, domestic resource helping to preserve the American economy.
