don’t eat no imported shrimp, catfish or tilapia, me

Does anyone actually import catfish or tilapia to the US? There must be thousands of catfish farms (channel cats) in the US and tilapia are everywhere. They even use them in striped bass farms as the garbage clean-up fish. It gives the striper farms 2 sources of income.

I can't see how it would be profitable to import those fish since they're so easy to raise.

Oddly, fresh channel cat is difficult to find in Germany. The NordSea stores have catfish sometimes but it's usually a local breed that I'm not that fond of. Strong fishy taste rather then the mild channel cat taste.
