Catfish ponds


In a May 9, 2011 photo, one of the Simmons Farm Raised Catfish ponds is buried inside the levee near Yazoo City, Miss. It is hoped the levees will be high enough to protect the fish from the Mississippi River flood waters which could destroy the ponds's content and force a two-year rebuilding program of the pond.
