Pangasius as a Business – Palaisdaan.
I have first heard of pangasius fish from one veterinary friend of mine. According to her this fish is very suited in our country and the demand is high especially in restaurant and fast food. Pangasius fillet is very in-demand also in the USA, Spain and Russia.
If you have visited Agrilink last year you might have observed some booth with an aquarium displaying this so called pangasius. At first glance you would think that it is a baby shark but actually it is a catfish which belong to the shark catfish family (Pangasiidae). Some article says wild pangasius t could reach a weight more than 200++ kgs and length of about 10 feet when fully grown. This pangasius is endemic in Mekong, Vietnam.
This fish is known in different names like sutchi catfish, silver striped catfish, Siamese shark, or swai catfish. And as we all know catfish family could survived almost any condition and you could feed it with almost anything.
