Here is a short story about the Pangasius life cycle of told by a Pangasius.

What is my full name? 

My full name is Pangasius hypophthalmus, yet I have so many other daily names too. For example, people usually call me Pangasius, Basa in Canada and Australia, Swai in the US, Cream Dory in Middle East, Philippines and Singapore, or even Sutchi in Singapore. Too many names, right?

Hmm, so where do other Pangasius and I live?

For as long as I can remember, we have lived together in such a large pond since we were fingerlings. So I was told that we are mostly raised 10 Mekong Delta provinces in Vietnam including An Giang, Dong Thap, Tien Giang, Can Tho, Vinh Long, Ben Tre, Hau Giang, Soc Trang, Tra Vinh and Kien Giang.
Yeah. That's me. I am cute, aren't I?

This is where I live. I am swimming and swinging somewhere in that pond. Can you spot me?. Credit:

We are feeded every day with these little pellets called commercial fish feed that look like this.

When are we considered grown pangasius?

It takes us some time between 8 to 10 months to fully grow before we are ready to be harvested and become an International product proundly bearing the Vietnamese origin to markets worldwide.

We are now fully grown and ready to be harvested. Credit:

And that is it. A very short story about us. If you find it story enjoyable, feel free to share with your friends and colleagues.

Have a nice day!
