This is the website of the Catfish Study Group. We are based in the northwest of England, UK but have members the world over - read more about us here.

Please feel free to browse the pages and if you are new or an old hand in the catfish hobby and would like to be involved, you can join online. You can also subscribe to our quarterly Journal which is full of articles from the leading catfish experts around the world.

We hold an open show each September and our annual convention in March is a three day affair with leading speakers from across the aquatic world. The event also provides an excellent opportunity to meet and catch up with friends afar.

Our monthly meetings, open show and auctions are held in Darwen and you can find route details on the "Find Us" section and the dates and subject matter in the "Events" page.

A very popular event is our auctions and there are three held. The first is in March, the second in September and is incorporated into the open show and the last of the year is in November. These auctions are always very well attended and you can pick up some very good bargains and catfishes not seen anywhere else in the UK.
