    The name on the boxes I get call it Pangasius Hypothalamus. I have heard/read a lot of the negative stuff on its quality but I still eat it once or twice a week. Its so damn cheap and the only flavourless fish (not super fishy taste) that I have found a liking for.

    Everything seems to give you cancer these days. I'm just going to stop eating. That will be easier

    I just bought a kg of the stuff. So bloody cheap.
    If you believe everything you read about what's in your food, or on it, you would starve. Even 'fresh' fruit and veg has had all sorts of stuff sprayed on it. The consumer has no idea of what's in their food or drink.
    The only way your gonna know for sure is to raise it, or grow it yourself.
    Aint no way but the hard way!

    Default Basa is Good

    Mate ur fish selling mate is protecting his overpriced local industry.
    I cook Basa all way,even marinated.Beautifull!!!!!!!!!!
    The australian fishing industry is overpriced and ripping off all Australians.
    The Australian gov would not allow entry of any contaminated product into australia.
    The Australian fishing industry does not want you only paying up to $5 per Kilo for perfect fish ,when you should be paying them up to or over $30 per kilo.
    What!!!

    Wise up guys.

    i think most people who warn about dangers in food have some agenda and/or are trying to get you to buy & eat their product instead.

    Vietnam and Thailand for basa and full of antibiotics and steroids

    The Mekong clean ? according to Seafood Importers Association of Australia (SIAA) : Correct Information About Basa

    If the Mekong river commision says its not clean,

    "Of the 60 million people living in the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB), about 40% live within a 15-km corridor along the Mekong River, most within 5 km of the mainstream. Without a doubt, the river acts as the region's highway and provides access to trade, food security and livelihoods.

    Riverine communities are experiencing a period of rapid change, as the Lower Mekong Basin makes a competitive presence on regional and global markets. However, millions still live without basic amenities such as clean drinking water and electricity."

    If its not fit to drink, what makes fish caught or grown in it safe ?

    Once my wife brought basa home I threw that mercury laced gunk straight out. Nothing better than salmon filets from the deli or market!
