First it was snakeheads, now you'll probably see more catfish specials on restaurant menues, especially if you head to Maryland for seafood this Spring and Summer.
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says it's trying to lower the number of invasive blue and flathead catfish by encouraging people to eat them. They're native to the Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio rivers, but got introduces here in the 1960s.
