Trio of rare Mandarin catfish landed from the River Ebro

To catch one Mandarin catfish is a feat in itself, but to land three is unheard of - yet this is exactly what a pair of anglers on the River Ebro achieved.

The trio of rare specimens – measuring 212cm, 210cm and 180cm - were caught by Team Black Cat guides Stefan Seub and Lee Franchetti who were fishing just one swim away from each other on the famous Spanish waterway.

Stefan said: “I have never known of such a catch of three of these rare white and gold catfish on the same night. Just days earlier, one of my guests, Robert Baumann, managed to land a completely white catfish which could have been an albino. So, if you are looking for ‘Spanish gold’, you can find it on the Ebro.”
