    Default (GDG)farm raised cat vs. river cat(GDG)

    Having a fish fry.
    For those who have had both, what taste better, farm raised catfish or river catfish?
    Have access to both.

    i guess it depends on the river. The catfish that come from the Oconnee River here are sweet. You cannot find better anywhere. The lake fish are good, just not as good.

    I submit myself as an expert.

    Not familiar with catfish, but generally it is considered that wild (ie river) has a much better taste and colour, than farmed (salmon). Farmed fish may have various antibiotics, etc added to the food.

    Going with Leddyman on this one. River cats all the way. Farm raised doesn't have any flavor. Greg

    LOL
    I have no opinion on which tastes better but I wanted to post because as a was browsing the topics and skimming the content my eye caught....
    "Farm cat or river cat, which tastes better?" and my eye skipped the fish part. I thought you were talking about eating kitty for a very short minute.

    Me too. I thought this was a retort to the ferral cat thread.

    I'm not sure either, so cook both and invite me and I'll let you know which is better!

    Yah.. I actually thought it was some joke about about barn cats.. Was wondering why one would throw it in the river first before eating.. Maybe for the fresh fishy flavor?

    Wild catfish are must better tasting than farm raised. Farm raised have NO taste, actually.
