What is swai fish?

My relationship is, "FAN" as I seriously like Swai / Basa. It seems like there is a lot of CFA backers hanging out here.

That's a fair review. I would suggest baking with herbs and tomatoes, it brings out the fish's natural buttery flavor. This is my families new favorite, especially given the price. Let me suggest Dried Italian herbs, a splash of olive oil and top with some sliced yellow tomatoes. I bake at 350, and when the juices start bubbling , i switch to broil for 5-10 minutes or till they fillets get Brown and crispy.

These are the people giving Swai / Basa a bad name. Swai / Basa, really great fish in its own right.

Ok, not only are you incorrect about "Channel Catfish" being only the North America variety, you are wrong about the two being of different Families. If you research the two different fish using the fishbase.com link you provided, you can find that the "Channel Catfish" is also native to six other countries , and are the exact same species. Further more the Swai variety is not only the same Family as "Channel Catfish", it is also of the same Genus, differing only in Species.

I hope you realize that you are throwing out unverified propaganda (LIES) fabricated by a scared and greedy Catfish Farmers of America (CFA) in an attempt to stifle foreign competition.An independent study reveals that many Vietnamese fishery farms are cleaner and more efficient than some of our local CFA farms. Get educated on the issue.
