Channel Catfish are very hardy fish, a feature that makes them a welcome addition to aquaponics or aquaculture environments. Able to survive in temperatures ranging from just above freezing to 100˚ F, the optimal temperature for raising Channel Catfish ranges from 75˚ - 86˚ F. Slightly hardier than even the popular Tilapia breeds, Channel Cats will continue to grow in lower temperatures when Tilapia growth would normally slow. While they can survive in somewhat poor conditions, Channel Catfish will do best if their environment has good aeration, filtration and water flow. Live Aquaponics offers two varieties of Channel Cats - regular or albino. On this page, you can order the albino variety.
