Pangasius is a type of freshwater catfish that is primarily found in Vietnam. It has a dark grey colored back, silver belly and long twin beard with more red blood cells than other types of fish. Pangasius is available in many forms in the market, such as skinless and boneless fillets or portions in different sizes and shapes cut from the fillets. At present, Vietnam is one of the dominant exporters and cultivators of pangasius across the globe. Over the years, the pangasius sector in the country has undergone vitals changes, with the production shifting from small farm owners to big enterprises.
Vietnam Pangasius Market Trends:
One of the significant growth factors for the market is the abundance of fresh water sources in Vietnam, which has facilitated the pangasius aquaculture across the country. Additionally, pangasius species have a low to moderate fat content with high levels of protein. This, along with their relatively lower cost, delicate texture and mild flavor, has increased the demand for pangasius across various countries, consequently providing a positive impact on the export market in Vietnam. Apart from this, the Vietnam Pangasius Association (VPA) has emphasized the need to focus on broodstock quality, general fish health and technological improvement in order to ensure sustainable growth. As a result, they are advancing and mandating the use of Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) to minimize the impact on local environments and communities. This has led to the growth of high-quality pangasius cultivation, as well as expansion in production capacities. Moreover, Vietnamese farming companies are also investing in hatcheries and processing facilities to improve vertical integration. Looking forward, the market is projected to witness stable growth during the forecast period (2020-2025).
