    Here is a Channel cat we got out of lake winnibago in wisconsin.
    Beautiful fish
    a fat female.
    Its colors where very gold but it was not an albino fish. the water is very muddy and we tend to get light colored fish.

    All the reference albino cat pics (including the ones you sent me) I looked like they did not have pink eyes.

    I must be blind. I don't see any pink in the photo and the pupil looks black. I believe you though and probably the photo doesn't catch it.

    That said it wouldn't surprise me if these fish were not trully "albinos" from what I know about marketing fish. Lots of hype in this market. Could be just a genetic mutation that has been propogated like West Virgina Golden trout or a l ack of pigment that has been bread to run continuously.
