Ictalarus punctatus or channel catfish is an excellent addition to any aquaponic system. They are cold hardy and are a delicious source of protein. On average they grow between 12 and 24 inches weighing 2 to 8lbs. They continue to grow , with the largest being 58 lbs and 52 inches in length. They also co habitat with tilapia quite well! Fish are between 3” and 5 “ currently . Remember the world record for channel cats is 143 lb and 58” in length!!! Holy smokes folks! If possible please order catfish on separate order from tilapia. This will help because I have to ship catfish in their own box. Thanks
