These sail catfish pictures shown below are close up pictures showing you exactly what a sail catfish fish looks like. Sail catfish, often called "sailcats", or sometimes even "salt water catfish", are caught in salt water or brine water, and are often quite small.

How to identify a sail catfish? Some characteristics of the sailcat include having whiskers along the mouth, caught in brine or salt water, skin instead of scales, and also has a very long fin along the back like a sail. (Always remember when releasing fish to get them back into the water as soon as possible and not over/rough handling, so the fish do not die after being released. Just because the fish swims away does not mean it actually survived).
