I don't think I have ever eaten a wild/natural catfish before. The supermarket sells farmed raised fillet, the park and lakes I go to are planted by farmed raised cat. Are wild Channels or other species of Catfish better tasting. I was told that the big farmed raised ones would taste better than the big ones that was born in the wild. This is because their diet is regulated until their plant or removal from the farm. The old natural ones, eat all kind of stuff and the quality is not as good. Is this true? I understand the farm probably wants to raise them and fatten them in the shortest time possible so who know, they are probably feeding them all sorts of hormones and stuff. I know there's quite a distinction between the farmed and natural Salmon. What about catfish?
