The Catfish is a fish first introduced in Animal Crossing, then brought back for the rest of the series. Surprisingly, it is an uncommon fish in the games.


[edit] Players

This is what your player says when you catch a Catfish:

[edit] Animal Forest e+

ナマズを 釣り上げた! ヒゲ なが―い!

[edit] Animal Crossing

I caught a catfish! I think I'll name it Whiskers!

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

I caught a catfish! Here, kitty kitty!

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

I caught a catfish! Who's meowing now?!

[edit] Menu

This is what the menu will say when you catch the Catfish:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

They're nocturnal carnivores and cannibals. This, of course makes them hard to breed

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"These nocturnal carnivores are also cannibals, so they're hard to farm-raise."

[edit] Museum

This is what Blathers will say when you donate this fish:

[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"I've heard some claim that these fish taste a bit like eel, you know. If you want to sample it, (player's name), I'd recommend panfrying it. Indeed, I believe you could deep-fry a rock, and I'd enjoy it, wot!"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Catfish are known the world over for their voracious appetites! They'll try to eat anything in one bite, up to and including things the of their bodies...or so I hear! The largest of these hungry fish can grow up to 40 inches in length... Imagine going down to the river and having one of those behemoths come at you! The horror!"

[edit] Real Life

Catfish have a slimy surface, like Eels. They are mainly black and are usually less than 12cm long. They are found in ponds and lakes.
