Swai Fish


Recommended Posts

Swai is an east Asian catfish.


Originally and still is farmed in the Mekong Delta. It is also now farmed in the Mississippi Delta. I would make sure I knew where my fish was coming from.


Rice farm runoff is a big problem in the Mekong Delta, resulting in E. coli levels much higher than the legal limit. Other surprising substances, such as antibiotics, have also been found in closely-related species such as basa farmed in the river. In fact, reports from the three external health and safety ranking systems employed by North Coast Seafood are ominous: one labels swai “Not Recommended” and another identifies “Some Concerns”
