this is a legendary south american armored catrfish that lives in muddy areas of shallow fresh water.

Stabroek News - Hassar (Cascadura) ? not an ordinary fish

it has been sung about and is the subject of folk stories

and it makes a heck of a curry and dumpling dish

Simply Trini Cooking: Curry Cascadura and Dumpling


well i am in love with Trinidad and also with its amazing cooking

and i cant travel there too soon and really want to try this dish so Im trying to see if there is a way to obtain it?

i know it has been transplanted to some florida water ways

it is known to Americans as the "brown hoplo" or "armored catfish"

in venezuela and trinidad it is cascadura, cascadoo in trinidad, also hassar or hassah, especially in guyana....

Cascadura - MonsterFishKeepers.com

if u eat the fish u are destyined to die in trinidad

needless to say i need to eat it as soon as possible
