The culture of striped catfish, Pangasianodon hypophthalmus (Sauvage), or “ca tra” in Vietnamese in
the Mekong Delta of Vietnam, can be considered as a unique aquatic farming system in many ways.
Production is the fastest growth recorded in any aquaculture sector, ever, based on a single species,
superseding the production per unit for any form of primary production. Stripped catfish aquaculture
now need to be improved in many aspects and environmental issues need to be paid more attention to
ensure the sustainable development.
