The blue catfish is also known by other names, such as channel cat, hump-back blue, forktail cat, great blue catfish, and chucklehead catfish5 In other languages, it is called bagre azul (Spanish), poisson-chat bleu (French), blauer Katzenwels (German), pesce gatto blu (Italian), and 青鯰 (Chinese).

The blue catfish is an opportunistic predator, eating any species of fish it can take, along with insects, crawfish, crabs, freshwater mussels, clams, worms, frogs, and other readily available aquatic food sources. It is one of the only species of fish in the Mississippi river basin able to eat adult Asian carp.

The blue catfish is considered an invasive species in some areas, particularly the Chesapeake Bay, where it has expanded its range and population and has the potential to cause a lot of harm to the native ecosystem26 However, it is also considered a tasty and nutritious fish, and many states in the Chesapeake Bay watershed are working together to encourage recreational and commercial fishing for these catfish6
