The Besrian catfish (Arithide Bissora ['bissəra]) is a freshwater siluriform catfish native to the Theph river in the Arophanian Eastern Seaboard. Black-bodied with a white tail, the fish grows up to 1.8m and exceed 90kg in weight, but is usually caught while not fully adult, when it is little over a metre long and weighs just under 60kg, and believed to be when its flesh is at its tenderest and sweetest.

The largest Besrian ever caught, approximately a keth upstream from the industrial city of Regea, measured 1.94m and weighed in at 106.6kg. Its skeleton is housed in the Oskana Museum in Rasoup.
