All posts regarding the care and breeding of catfishes from other parts of the world (North America, Europe and Australia). If you don't know where your catfish is from, post a query in the identification category.
Rather interesting! But who wraps up a catfish body and dumps it in a river?
"Fishing provides that connection with the whole living world. It gives you the opportunity of being totally immersed, turning back into yourself in a good way. A form of meditation, some form of communion with levels of yourself that are deeper than the ordinary self."
If this had happened in the US it was the start of a prank. I could see a couple of guys fishing at the river drinking a few beers. They catch the large catfish and think it would be a riot to put it in someone's pool or bath tub. The only problem is it is too big to haul, unless you have a pickup truck......
Thanks for the post. It obviously made me think of my younger days.
Just remember, every successful spawning in aquaria helps to preserve them in the wild. My goal is to obtain and spawn as many Pseudacanthicus species as possible so more people can enjoy them. Three down, many to go.
