They are small clams and I find them in almost every bluecat stomach. That is about the only thing you can identify unless it was just eaten. Their stomach acids digest their food quick. We use DNA testing in our studies. We just had our annual meetings..........Gary

I thought someone said on this board awhile back that bluecats rarely feed on bottom were toxins can b found. I never believed it but someone did can’t remember who
Bluecats feed in all columns of the water table. As they grow bigger they prefer to eat fish but will eat anything available. There are some types of catfish that are solely bottom feeders.......Gary

A catfish is a garbage can with fins. Sharks can't hold a candle to their aggressiveness when feeding.
