The Science of Catfish

Check Meowt! I’m sure that’s what a catfish could say, if they could talk. Anyway, in Nebraska we have catfish, and they are some of the most prominent known fishes in Nebraska – because of their whiskers, or barbells. And maybe because our state fish is a Channel Catfish. These fish are so weird, and yet so fascinating. Not only are they considered a game fish in Nebraska, but Catfish are also extremely diverse, not only in colors, sizes, and shapes, but also in habitats. In this Science of episode we will be holding our breaths and diving, literally, into the water right next to these appealing and charming characters. Join us and learn all about the species we have and their captivating characteristics.
