Catfish are a bottom-dwelling freshwater fish with barbels that look a lot like whiskers but are sensory organs around the catfish mouth. Most of the meat from catfish is found around the belly. There is a large piece of meat on the belly of the catfish so larger the fish the more meat to make catfish stew.


Fish is the cheapest source of animal protein in Africa. Ghana’s fisheries provide 65% of the countries protein requirements, and support the livelihoods of almost 10% of Ghana’s population.
