How do you know that Arkansas Certified Baitfish meet the Program Standards ?

-  Farms are required to have rigourous semi-annual testing for diseases. An independant veterinarian oversees the collection process and ensures delivery to the testing laboratory.

- The disease testing laboratory has to meet rigourous national and international standards.

- Farms must follow stringent biosecurity requirements that prevent the introduction of diseases and other unwanted organisms.

- The Arkansas Agriculture Department conducts on-site inspections to insure that the farm is in compliance and that no exotic species are present.
