Black Bullhead Underwater Video

Black Bullhead-The First 60 Days of Life:  Filmed over the course of 2 months, see black bullhead catfish move from fry stage to fingerlings.  After the eggs hatch, thousands of black bullhead fry fill the nest and are guarded diligently by the male.  Predation reduces their numbers, and by fall only a handful remain.  No longer under the protection of their parents, survivors from multiple nests begin to reform in large schools in shallow water, as a new year class of fish is created .  Unique, HD underwater video takes you below the surface to see black bullhead fry navigate the underwater landscape in their first few weeks of life.
