Catfish is high in protein and low in fat. The calorie count allows families to pair the fish with several healthy side dishes which makes it palatable in Egusi, Efo ririo and other major African dishes. Eating catfish also boosts your body’s intake of heart-healthy amino acids.
In addition, it is noted that a single serving of catfish provides a whopping 40-percent of an adult’s daily intake of vitamin B-12, which helps the body convert food into energy.
Farm-Raised Catfish also is very low in mercury, which means it is safe for consumption by women who are pregnant.
For the aforementioned price, you have 30-35 pieces of dried catfish which you can save for over a year on your shelf.
