Catfish are a diverse group of ray finned fish that can be fished, available in Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties.

Catfish are found on Honshu, Yellow River, and Regicide. They have 100 hit points and yield 500 food.


Scientific Name: Nematognathi
Approx. Size: varies widely, from 2 in. to 12 ft.
Diet: Aquatic plants, insects

The common name “catfish” refers to a group of about 2,200 species of fish characterized by the whiskers (or barbells) jutting out from the side of the their jaws. They are omnivorous scavengers and bottom feeders.

The variety found in the Nematognathi suborder is astounding. For example, the “walking catfish” of Southeast Asia can use a slithering motion to move across land in search of deeper waters. It can temporarily breathe out of water because of a modified gill arch that forms a chamber for air. Another catfish - the electric catfish - found in the Nile River, can discharge electrical shocks.
