Flathead Catfish collected near Emerald Necklace Marina is the first of its kind documented in the Rocky River

"Today while collecting  fish by the marina for two tank exhibits (RR and West Creek) and for Touch a Truck, we turned up a flathead catfish (see photos).  This is a new record for the watershed and for the park (it is a native fish).  This is just a “baby”, as these can grow over 50 pounds in the Ohio River drainage of Ohio.  Add this to the recent record of the spotted suckers from the river last year, and the diversity of the river is actually increasing…boding well for the health of the river!"
