Catfish can grow in a wide range of environments and are consumed all around the world. They are a common fish used by beginners with aquaponics systems. Catfish are significantly more active in warm environments. Accordingly, they require more feed to keep up with the increased metabolic demands in warmer climates.


Catfish can be harvested as early as three months and can grow up to a kg in about one year.
