silurid catfish
Explanation:
I would suggest this translation because there are various kinds of catfishes that do not belong to Sylurius family. Examples: Mochokid catfish(Synodontis family), Doradid catfish(Pseudodoras y Orinocodoras), Electric catfish (Malapterus electricus....) that all live in the fresh waters.

Try Google.

Good luck.
