This photo shows an intensive cage farming of catfish in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. The fish production in this system may reach up to 100 kg/m3. In such intensive system, artificial feed is the only source used in fish nutrition which represents very high share in the production costs. Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) have directed local exporters to use “basa” as trade name Vietnamese catfish “tra” and “basa” whose main markets are EU and USA.
Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
