English term or phrase: catfish
Now we have time to catch a catfish. WE got it! These barbs are like little prong just poking out there. And these are his whiskers that's why he's called a catfish. ( the group fishing is in Asia)

Seria peixe-gato ou bagre? Já encontrei referências que dizem que não sao a mesma coisa e que é errado traduzi-lo como peixe gato. Alguma sugestão? Muito obrigada.

bagre
Explanation:
Bagre-bandeira, bagre-cacumo, bagre-de-penacho, bagre-do-mar, bagre-fita, bagre-mandim, bagre-sari, bandeira, bandeirado, bandim, pirá-bandeira, sarassará, sargento ou bagre-bandeirado (Bagre marinus - também designado por alguns autores como Galeichthys parrae, Galeichthys bahiensis, Galeichthys blochii, Felichthys marinus, Silurus marinus e por Aelurichthys longispinis) é um peixe da família dos ariídeos, nativo do Atlântico ocidental.

The gafftopsail catfish, Bagre marinus, is found in the waters of the western central Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. It has long venomous spines which can cause painful wounds. It feeds on crustaceans and other fish. The male of the species fertilizes the eggs of the female, and broods them in his mouth until they hatch. Unlike many other catfishes which are primarily bottom feeders, the gafftopsail feeds throughout the water column.
