    Hi Guys,

    I'm from the UK, where we don't have nearly as many Catfish as you guys - but a local water is stocked with Wels catfish reaching mid-50lb & growing.

    Recently we have had several sudden catfish deaths on capture - I'm looking for any sources of information you guys may have over in the US on catfish disease or anything else that can cause sudden death in stressed catfish.

    There is little or no info in the UK on Wels catfish.

    Thanks!

    Cypri

    you came to the right place. I know on the last site that there was some pretty in depth information on Wells. I for one can't help you out on this situtation, but I'm sure you'll get the info that you need!
