White Catfish (Ictalurus catus)

In New York, white catfish occur in the Hudson River where they are common below Albany and may also be found in the lower sections of some larger tributaries as they join the lower Hudson. This fish reaches a larger size than bullheads, but is not as large as the channel catfish.
