Ictalurus is a genus of North American freshwater catfishes. It includes the well-known channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) and blue catfish (Ictalurus furcatus). The catfish genome database (cBARBEL) is a database for the genetics of Ictalurus species.
The channel catfish (scientific name: Ictalurus punctatus), also called the channel cat, is a species of catfish. It is the official fish of several States of the United States (US). They are Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and Tennessee. In the US, it is the most fished catfish species.

Lundberg The genus Ictalurus includes 12 valid described species, 4 extinct and 8 living, and perhaps six additional undescribed species. There are two distinct subclades: the furcatus or blue catfish group and the punctatus or channel catfish group.
The channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), relative to blue and headwater catfish, is a common freshwater fish in the United States, the only one of its species in North America with a forked tail, and has a unique monogamous relationship every spawning season.Read More
Abstract Behavioral observations have suggested that Channel Catfish, Ictalurus punctatus, spawn as monogamous pairs and that males alone provide subsequent care to the resulting embryos and fry. However, genetic monogamy is quite uncommon in fish and is not necessarily correctly predicted by apparent social interactions.Read More

Inhabits lakes and deep pools and runs over sand or rocks in small to large rivers (Ref. 86798).Adults occur in rivers and streams and prefer clean, well oxygenated water (Ref. 9988), but also in ponds and reservoirs (Ref. 10294, 44091).Recorded as having been or being farmed in rice fields (Ref. 119549).Feeds primarily on small fish, crustaceans (e.g. crayfish), clams and snails; also on.Read More
Abstract The effect of conventional cooking methods and the influence of season upon proximate composition, mineral, and fatty acid profile was studied in catfish (Ictalurus punctatus, Rafinesque) fillets. Seasonal (August, December, and April purchased fillets) influences were minimal.Read More
Inhabits deep water of impoundments and main channels and backwaters of medium to large rivers, over mud, sand and gravel (Ref. 5723, 86798).Stays on the bottom during the day in deep areas and moves into swifter water at night to feed (Ref. 117513).Feeds on small aquatic invertebrates, clams and fishes (Ref. 93252).Prefers clear, strongly flowing water.Read More
Abstract The channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) are the most common catfish of all freshwater catfish that is located in various parts of the United States and a native fish around the state of Alabama. The symmetrical ray-finned black and olive colored fish is the only North American catfish with a deeply forked tail. Channel catfish spawn during the spring and summer and the average life.Read More

Ictalurus punctatus fingerlings were immunized by 2 cycles of infection with either of 2 different Ichthyophthirius multifiliis immobilization serotypes (designated G1.1 and G2) and challenged with heterologous strains. In one experiment, 3 replicate groups of 6 G2-immune catfish were exposed to 3 fish infected with serotype G1.1. In another experiment, 2 groups of 6 G1.1 immune catfish were.Read More
