Yes I've caught a few off Whitby in past years. It's a salt water Catfish, also known as Wolfish. The fish cosists of a big ugly head with some of the most formidable teath and jaw power you're likely to see in any fish. The body is relatively small in comparison to head size, but the flesh makes good eating.

I can only reply from my own experience. I'm a boat angler and have caught the occasional Catfish when out on my small boat offshore from Whitby. They have been captured on baited pirks in water in excess of 200 feet.

They are a COLD water fish, I worked in the national Aquarium here for a while and the water in the tank had to be run through refrigeration.
