US - Bill Kyser’s farm hand knew the catfish pond’s dam had eroded. He just didn’t realize how much.
âHe got out of the truck to look because the dam looked too narrow to drive across," Kyser said. âHe took a couple of steps away and the dam just crumbled away under the truck and the truck rolled into the pond."
All catfish ponds and dams erode over time. But the 2005 hurricane season greatly accelerated the process, leaving catfish farmers with costly repairs.
They got some good news Tuesday as U.S. Rep. Artur Davis, D-Ala., and Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries Ron Sparks delivered $5 million to Alabama aquaculture farmers.
