I’m a nonjewish person and this puzzles me. My mom has a Jewish friend at her work and she said catfish is not kosher. I kinda understand why pigs and shellfish are not kosher but I assumed that all regular fish was okay. The argument I’ve been given was because they are bottom feeders which makes no sense to me. All fish are swimming in the same waters and eating relatively from the same ecosystems.
Why is catfish not kosher?
