From gills to fins, the catfish is a fascinating animal. This game fish is a valuable part of its environment. The largest freshwater fish ever caught was a catfish! A catfish's body is covered with taste buds, so it can scavenge for food throughout its environment. Fittingly, the Fish & Game series is part life science, part sports and recreation. This book explores the catfish, including its habitat, appearance, history, seasonal habits, scientific classification, life cycle, predators, and defenses. The book also addresses fishing techniques, proper equipment, safety, health, ethics, and responsibility. Through big, full-color photos and approachable text, readers will get inspired to explore nature, and get to know the catfish!
