    Catfish are a diverse family of freshwater fish found in a variety of waterways across the world. From the mighty Mississippi River in North America to the rivers of Europe, Asia, and Africa, there are over 3,000 species of catfish. The most well-known species in North America is the channel catfish, which is highly prized by anglers and commercially raised for food.

    In terms of appearance, catfish are known for their smooth, scaleless skin, barbels, and spines. They are bottom-dwelling fish and have a diet that includes insects, small fish, and other aquatic organisms. Some species of catfish, such as the flathead catfish, can grow quite large, with some individuals reaching over 100 pounds.

Custom Fish Mount - FAQ

What is a Release Mount?

A Release Mount is a mount of your trophy fish produced without any of the actual fish parts. Almost all saltwater mounts are Release Mounts, which are constructed of lightweight composite materials and are cast from pre-existing molds. These mold impressions were originally taken from carefully selected fish. Your authentic mount is hand-painted and one-of-a-kind.

How long will my mount take to create?

Normal lead time is 4 to 6 weeks. Expedite Service is available on most mounts as an add-on. Each task requires precision workmanship and must pass final inspection before moving on to the next process. You can rest assured that no compromises are ever taken in the production of your custom mount.

How are mounts attached to the wall?

It hangs like a picture. A sturdy hanger comes balanced and installed in each mount. All that is required is a screw or nail to be inserted into the wall. Our lightweight mounts are produced using hollow-cast fiberglass. For outdoor locations, we offer a 2-piece stainless steel hanging bracket system that is extra strong and burgular-resistant.

Are real fish still being used?

No. The marine taxidermy industry produces 99% of all mounts using composite materials. The change from “Skin” to “Composite Mounts” occurred in the 70’s and 80’s, and has not been well publicized. After measurements and photographs are taken, release your fish alive and order a “Release Mount”!
