In France there is at least one "Michelin star" chef who has had silure (Wels) on the menu. So far I have not been minded to try them, one day I might as they are considered an invasive species and should not be returned to the river.Bet that fish would provide enough fillets to feed a dozen with more left for storage! Catfish are one of my favorite freshwater fish to eat.
Unlikely, unless you have health problems. But its reportedly very painful and the affected limb swells considerably!That mean you die if it pierces the skin?!!
