Largest North American catfish to be brought back to Pa. rivers

HARRISBURG (TNS) — With blue catfish — the largest catfish species in North America — beginning to show up in the Ohio River in southwestern Pennsylvania after an absence of about a century, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission this week launches restoration efforts for the fish in rivers in the state.

The commission this fall will stock 3- to 5-inch juvenile blue catfish into the Allegheny, Ohio and Monongahela rivers, which are collectively known as the Three Rivers.
