How To Humanely Kill a Catfish

Catfish are hard to kill. I have seen them still moving after being out of the water for hours.

I never liked keeping catfish because they are so hard to clean and kill. I refuse to fillet a live fish. I am convinced that fish do feel pain.

That is, I did not like doing it until I learned this method of killing them instantly.

Basically, you make a small slit over the soft spot on their head between their eyes. Then slide a thin piece of wire into the soft spot, destroying the fishes brain and central nervous system.

The fish will shutter for a few seconds and then go limp. Large catfish require a long piece of wire.

Here is a video I made on how to do it:
