We love a good meal of cat fish as much as the next person. It's tasty, can be used for a variety of dishes and the best party - it's healthy.

The last few years has witnessed a significant boost of cat fish consumption and with more cat fish farms springing up by the day, cat fish is bound to remain a perfect fixture on menus around the country.

On the off chance that you're still on the fence about the tasty treat that a meal of cat fish is, here are 3 reasons why you need to hop on the band wagon ASAP.

 

  1. Low in calories and fat: If you're on a diet or looking to lose weight, then this is the protein choice for you as its low in fat and calories. You're also at less risk of clogging your arteries and heart with fat with a meal of catfish.

  2. Rich in protein: Catfish like most 'animals' is rich in protein. It's infact richer in protein and also provides immune function as it aids in building the body's immune system.

  3. Contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids: Omega fatty acids are great for the heart and brain.
