Difference between catfish and nogai
- large ferocious northern deep-sea food fishes with strong teeth and no pelvic fins
- flesh of scaleless food fish of the southern United States; often farmed
- any of numerous mostly freshwater bottom-living fishes of Eurasia and North America with barbels like whiskers around the mouth
North African catfish live in a variety of freshwater environments, including quiet waters like lakes, ponds, and pools.
It's a delicate white fish that's less fishy and less oily than the kind of catfish that usually gets drowned in chili powder.
Also, I know you disdain catfish, but there's certainly a subset of guys who are hard-core and pretty cultish about catching monster blues and flatheads.
