Catfish fishing

Catfish are a diverse group of fish which have one thing in common: their barbels. They exist in all kinds of colours and sizes, ranging from the Mekong giant catfish in Asia, the wels catfish in Eurasia to the piraiba in South America. Catfish are the largest freshwater fish and they can grow up to 5m and weigh over 300kg!!

The wels catfish is native to the Rhine, the Danube, the Volga and the Urals. Recently, this species has been introduced by humans for sport fishing in rivers and lakes across Western Europe. This predator is present for example in the Ebro in Spain, the Rhône in France and the Po in Italy.
