2. If you saw the earlier thread today about tilapia being bred in water polluted with fecal nutrients

you'll throw that recipe away ASAP.

5. I don't like tilapia.

I love fish, tilapia is gross. And I said so before the article in GD.

The recipe sounds like a modified version of one I have for catfish (I've used it for trout, as well). Much better fishies.

6. Catfish is yum!

 

Of course, one probably wouldn't want to spend too much time pondering what they eat either...

8. Oh...no.

Bottom feeders.

Catfish is 2nd on my list after salmon. Fried, broiled, baked, grilled...and I live in Arizona.

9. The interesting thing my wife and I have pondered a time or two...

 

Bottom feeders and "filter" species seem to be some of the tastiest seafoods... catfish, crab, lobster, oysters, clams, mussels, etc... Of course, it's my contention that everything in a bio-system has it's purpose, and lot's of unused nutrients in waste and carrion gets turned into proteins/sugars/what-have-you in "lower" species, which in turn makes them good eats for us, completing the cycle.

14. That's probably pretty accurate.

I never thought about it before. I'm not big on shellfish. I love shrimp, but hate lobster. Love oyster stew, won't eat them raw. Love crab when it's in salads or mashed up into a tasty little cake, but don't like crab legs.

My family is from Louisiana, so I grew up eating it all. Okra can be deleted from the universe, though.
