Anyone know where a guy can buy some hybrid catfish and have them shipped? Maybe just 25 to 50. Thanks

There's a few places that have them, but I think all or most are in TX. Here is one I found: https://hennekehatchery.com/hybrid-blue-catfish/

They don't specifically offer shipping, but might be able to do it if you email or call them.

You're welcome. If you do find a supplier for Blue Cats (or Hybrids) through the mail, please let us know.

I sent them a message asking about shipping. We'll see what they say.

Interesting stuff. I looked at the Henneke site. They claim that a 5 to 7 inch hybrid cat could go to 5 to 7 pounds in a year. That would take a lot of groceries.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

See this from SRAC

https://srac.tamu.edu/fact-sheets/serve/252

Hybrids between the seven major species of North
American catfish (ictalurids) were first researched and
evaluated in 1966. Of these 42 different interspecific
catfish hybrids (crosses between two distinct species),
only one has characteristics that would favor commercial application compared to the prominently cultured
channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus). That hybrid is the
channel catfish female × blue catfish (I. furcatus) male
(denoted as the C×B hybrid). It is important to note that
mating the male channel catfish with the female blue
catfish does not produce a hybrid with the same superior
production characteristics as the C×B hybrid
.
