Catfish refers to a certain species of fish that resides in fresh water, which means that it has never been to the beach (and survived).
Catfish is most popular in the Southern United States, but maintains significant popularity elsewhere as well. Itís common to bread catfish with a cornmeal mixture before deep-frying it to perfection. Catfish tastes great.
Fried Catfish became an official snack on April 30th 2012.
