Ruler Marine: Pangasius

About Pangasius

Pangasius is a genus of medium-large to very large shark catfishes native to fresh water in South and Southeast Asia. The term “pangasius” is sometimes used to specifically refer to the commercially important basa fish, P. bocourti.


In 2011, Pangasius was sixth in the National Fisheries Institute’s “Top 10” list of the most consumed seafood in the United States. The Top 10 is based on the tonnage of fish sold. According to the NFI, this mild-flavored white-fleshed fish is farmed in Asia and used increasingly in foodservice. It is finding its way onto restaurant menus and into stores, as well, where one may see it called basa, tra, or swai.
