Basa Fillets


Basa is a member of Pangasius family and it is farmed in the fresh waters of Vietnam. It contains more fat compared to panga and has a cheaper market than panga. In recent years, its import has increased highly and it is especially preferred by America.

It has a pinky white meat. As it is not a too much fatty fish type, it is farmed as fresh fillet or covered like other Pangasius species.
