elcome to the website of the Catfish Study Group.
We are based in the U.K. in the northwest of England
but have members worldwide since our inception in
2000 eminating from the Northern Area Catfish Group.
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 or
by regular post, and receive our quarterly magazine
the "Catfish Study Group Journal" which
is full of articles from the leading catfish experts
around the world.
We hold an open show each September and our yearly
convention in March is a three day affair with speakers
from the leading lights of the aquatic world, and
of course a chance to meet and catch up with friends
afar. This is held at the Kilhey Court Hotel, Chorley
Road, Standish, Wigan, Lanc's. WN1 2XN
Our monthly meetings, open show and auctions are
held in Darwen and you can find route details in
"Find Us" and
the dates and subject matter in the "Diary
A very popular event is our auctions and there are
three held, Febuary, September, incorporated into
the open show, and the last of the year in November.
These auctions are always very well attended and
you can pick up some very good bargains and also
catfish not seen anywhere else in the U.K.
