[edit] Museum

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

[edit] Animal Crossing

"Hoo my! What a large fish! If I remember correctly, these beasties can only be caught in ponds, wot wot! Catfish whiskers don't actually sting, you know. The 'sting' comes from stiff pectoral barbs located below the gills. Simply ecstatic to have this fellow. We'll take good care of him. Hoo! I promise you that!"

[edit] Real Life

The Giant Catfish is based on the real life fish called the Mekong Giant Catfish and it is critically endangered in the wild. It is found in Asian seas.
