The biggest catfish is the Mekong catfish

I do not know of any catfish species that have poisonous whiskers. The whiskers are for feeling and tasting stuff on the bottom of the lake, pond or ocean. However, most catfish do have spines on dorsal (top) and side fins. It is possible to hold a catfish without getting stabbed by one of these sharp fins. If a catfish does happen to fin you and break skin, make sure you wash the wound thoroughly, especially if the catfish was a freshwater variety. If it is a saltwater catfish and you get finned by one, though it may hurt, wash your wound with ocean water. If the wound from a fin is deep, go to the ER and have them take a look to make sure the catfish did not injure any important parts of your body.

well a blue catfish and a channel cat is to different species of catfish but there are both male and female blue catfish and Channel catfish

You should not worry if you are bitten by a catfish. it may hurt a little, but i have never seen one with sharp teeth. They have really small ones. However the dorsal fins on virtually all catfish have a very sharp spine, and some of them have poison glands at the base of the spine (mostly small species of catfish). Handle them carefully - those spines make a nasty gash in the palm of you hand that takes a long time to heal.

It matters on which type of catfish. Some catfish eat fish, while other catfish eat vegetables on the sea floor.

It depends on the variety of catfish. Catfish vary in weight and size and some are poisonous. Some varieties of catfish will attack smaller fish, so selection for compatability is essential. ___________________________________________________________ Fish that will neither inflict harm on small catfish nor fit into the mouth of a bigger catfish. Catfish will consume anything that fits into their mouth and the majority of catfish have large mouths.
