The current information is collected during two visits to Ho Chi Minh City and Long Xuyen in Vietnam (Figure 1) in June and October 2007, and was also presented at the Biomarine Industry Seminar, arranged by Fiskeriforskning, Bergen Dep. in December 2007. The production of catfish (Pangasius sp.) in 2007 was estimated to reach 1 million tons. Most of the freshwater catfish production is carried out in earth ponds in the Mekong Delta. Based on information from one of the biggest catfish producers, the fillet yield is on average 34 %, leaving the rest of the body available for surplus added value products.
