my sister and her husband love fishing. they live on a the citys old reservoir turned lake/park/fishing spot. would the fish in there be good for our cats and dogs on a BARF diet? not bottom feeders?

What type of fish? I would say yes, but with any wild animal, i would freeze for a few days before feeding just to be safe.

um, surface to mid depth. we wouldnt want to feed him cat fish or anythign that hung around the bottom. :) quite frankly those are too big for any of our pets to eat whole!

bass are about it i think. there are some other smaller surface fish. they also have grass carp and catfish but i would imagine being bottom feeders those would be the first to carry a disease.
