The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service has scheduled an educational meeting for August 24, 2017 in Memphis, Tennessee to "... discuss the enforcement and implementation of the Final Rule, 'Mandatory Inspection of Fish of the Order Siluriformes and Products Derived from Such Fish.' Fish of the order Siluriformes include fish of several families, including catfish (fish of the family Ictaluridae), basa, tra, and swai (fish of the family Pangasiidae), and clarias (fish of the Clariidae family). FSIS will present information on the upcoming full implementation of the regulatory requirements at official domestic establishments that process Siluriformes fish and fish products, as well as information on entry procedures and reinspection at official import inspection establishments. FSIS is particularly interested in soliciting participation from representatives from domestic wild-caught operations that process Siluriformes fish and fish products ..."
