    now this probably isn't an original topic, but whats the best way to tell gender on a catfish, perticularly a flathead. and which is best to keep and eat without reflecting on the catfish population?

    Not sure sexing, but I believe that one male and one female expend all reproductive materials in one shot. So keeping both will make a diff. However I always return egged up females. I figure she will produce many more if she can find a spawning male.
