Vundu Catfish (Heterobranchus longifilis) is a large catfish inhabiting the south of Africa. Its size makes it an impressive catch for sport fishing enthusiasts! Not many other catfish species have such large second dorsal fins or long barbels. This one prefers staying 10 to 30 ft(3 to 9 m) deep. Just like the African Sharptooth Catfish, this one is omnivorous and can breathe atmospheric air. Boasting significant strengths and endurance, it can reach up to 60 inches(150 cm) in length and weigh over 110 lbs(50 kg), so make sure to use particularly sturdy tackle! The Vundu Catfish enjoys deep waters, but it tends to approach the shore during the night to feed on other fish, small vertebrae, and viscera.
