Humphreys County is a county located in the U.S. state of Mississippi, in the Mississippi Delta region. As of 2000, the population was 11,206. Its county seat is Belzoni. It is named for Benjamin G. Humphreys. It was named Farm-Raised Catfish Capital of the World in 1976 by then Governor Cliff Finch, since it produces more farm-raised catfish than any other U.S. county. 40,000 acres (160 km²) of the county are underwater, used to grow catfish. About 60 % of U.S. farm-raised catfish are grown within a 65 mile (105 km) radius of the county seat, Belzoni. However, the title "Catfish Capital" has also been claimed by Savannah, Tennessee, and Des Allemands, Louisiana. (from wikipedia)
