My swami places Bullhead as a diamon food. However, this is the dictonary defintion of a bullhead. IT is three different types of fish!

bullhead [ˈbʊlˌhɛd]
n
1. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Animals) any of various small northern mainly marine scorpaenoid fishes of the family Cottidae that have a large head covered with bony plates and spines
2. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Animals) any freshwater North American catfish of the genus Ameiurus (or Ictalurus), having a large head bearing several long barbels
3. (Life Sciences & Allied Applications / Animals) a scorpion fish, Scorpaena guttata, of North American Pacific coastal waters


Which one is SWAMI talking about? My guess would be the catfish!

I found a 2009 SWAMI thread that uses the term Ictalurus Nebulosus. Problem solved. It is the catfish.

Good. Getting to the Latin name should always be the #1 priority. The world of common and local names for fish is a murky nightmare. You may as well say "Oh yea, some fish.)

I didn't know it was the same as a catfish, but they look identical.  Only by us, bullheads are dark and yellowy.  And catfish are usually white and grey.  I used to catch bullhead in the pond by my house when I was a kid.  

Thanks for bringing back memories.
