The Smelly Alley Fish Company – Catfish:


Named for their long barbels that are supposed to resemble a cat's whiskers. These are farmed, frozen catfish, 1kg. Catfish have been used as food for hundreds of years in Africa, Asia and Europe - they live in rivers and coastal waters in all continents except Antarctica. Some people think they are delicious, others say they are lacking in flavour! In central Europe catfish are often eaten on holidays like Christmas, in the same way as carp, and this habit spread with to the southern United States where it is very popular fried in corn flour. President Reagan declared a "National Catfish Day" in 1987! These are frozen catfish.
