Mensagem:      Catfish seems like a big crowd in Brazil, since the general requisite is to have those respectable whiskers.     Altough there are several subsets of the species, for example,
  jaú
  piraíba
  surubim
  pirara
 cachara
  all can be considered catfishes.

   In fact, the catfish (bagre) to me is the one similar to these ones:

    That is, the one similar to the redtail catfish, only that brownish, and flathead.     The guys that have stingy fins situated at the side.  Unluckily, sometimes fishermen cut the fish and let their heads go with the tide, to the beach.     Where, people (grown -ups or kids) may step on it and be stung.      It hurts!    
   Not to mention, that one can be stung even swimming and unaware of it, can touch a buoyant head of those.
    I have never seen a freshwater "bagre" yet, just the ones that live in salty waters or rivers.
