Fact of the Day: Old Catfish

While a very diverse group of fish, catfish as an order (Siluriformes) emerged during the Cretaceous peroid where they co-existed with the last dinosaurs.

  1. Too bad they couldn't pass some stories down through the ages

  2. I have a friend who catches these all the time when he fishes, but he always gives them away because he says they have a gritty dirt taste no matter how often they're washed. I like them fried on occasion. Hugs...RO

    1. Horrible tasting fish and they are carnivores of river systems here in Australia - as I am sure they are worldwide.
      Just ask your fishermen mates!

      Such as pity that they didn't expire like the dinosaurs.
