Is Basa safe to eat? TG Fishery - Certifies your fish safety

Is Basa safe to eat? Yes. Basa is a popular fish from Vietnam. We are often asked: Is basa a freshwater fish? Yes. Ocean Packer's is the sole proprietor of TG fisheries. All TG brand basa fish which come to Canada are from our factory.

Known by many names such as: Swai, Pangasius, 巴沙鱼 or River Cobbler, TG Fishery prides itself on not using dangerous chemical agents and drugs to control pathogens and parasites in breeding ponds.

Our white basa fillets are light, flakey and firm, not soft or rubbery, with mild fish taste similarly to the popular western fish Cod and Haddock. Basa is known for having high quality proteins and healthy fats such as omerga-3. The fillets are boneless allowing for easy and preparation into many local dishes.
