It’s a funny thing, Australians must be the only nationality to disregard the catfish! I guess it has something to do with the quality of fish we target.

Guess you don't know how to cook a carp.

Put a rock into a pan of water and bring to the boil. Add the carp and boil for a further 10 minutes. Drain, toss away the carp and eat the rock.

I remember a few years ago where some renowned restaurants down south were passing off catfish as barramundi. They didn't know but the catfish had been added to the boxes at the point of origin (Northern Australia). The flesh is very similar to barramundi, but it would have to be saltwater ones though.

i eat basa regularly - twice a month
$7 a kilo no bones - no better way to get your preotein
has no taste but coat in a nice batter and is wonderful
Probably tastes no blander than most Flake you buy in fish'n'chip shops

from experience, carp from a dam stink but can be edible when cooked right,, a bloke too be you need to salt it and cook it off the side of a fire, the carp from a flowing stream , don't stink and taste pretty good, used lemmon grass etc , catfish taste like chicken ???? redfin rate 10/10
basa is currently $10 like from woolies , mine swim in orange juice so the taste is ok yellowtail and mackerel are bait fish until you smoke them and mmmm they are ok , from what I hear we categorise fish, the rest of the world experiments with cooking techniques and turns all local food into gourmet meals, t6he other night I had lobster tail and nile perch, if I mixed them in with a good sauce you would not pick the difference, go to the fish shop and ask what the fish is , most times its dog shark , lol

Nile Perch is often sold as Barra... Been plenty of Restaurants here have been done for swapping Barra for Nile Perch.... These days it is very hard to get decent fish...

Carp...have destroyed most if not all of Tasmania inland fishing,

When I use to live there, a bunch of us would fish most of the lakes around Tassie,

When we court a Carp we use to just leave them on the bank until we we was told that they can keep breathing for hour's,

so after that off go the head to make sure it dead,

Carp court on the mainland in a running stream are good eating, so I been told,

Watch a fishing show where they court some Carp from a running stream, placed the Carp in a old bathtub out side with clean water for 24 hour then filleted them, cut them up in to bite sizes , batter on them , cooked in hot oil, served them up to a bunch of blokes in a pub, they did not tell this blokes what kind of fish it was to after they had eaten it,

All the blokes really like the Carp,

Most of them said that they look at Carp in a different way now,

But I recon that it proves is that you can feed a bloke anything when he's been drinking smile smile smile

Free feed is always a great day in my books smile smile smile

It is illegal to catch a carp and put them back in the water.... Down in Numurka they hold 'the great carp-off' every year... 100's of people enter with cash prizes up to $10,000 for the biggest carp, most caught and prizes for the kids as well. trophy .. All sponsored by the fisheries in Victoria.... After the 'Day' they have a good feed on what was caught... party

Its illegal as well to put them back in at Tassie.

Carp started off as a goldfish in someone aquarium,

That was what the fishing clubs was told at Tassie...
