Thanks Bob.I never thought about that!HOWEVER-----I did google Panga fish and found the results rather disconcerting to say the least!!!!!!According to several reports,Panga come from Vietnam where the methods for raising the fish are scary to say the least and apparently involve injecting them with urine from pregnant women! According to several sources it´s best not to eat Panga.You have been warned!!   Val

Hi All
Another major problem used to be freezing them in river water, that practice has stopped apparently, Panga is one of the catfish family which feed in the mud at the bottom of the river, another minus point, they taste OK but the flesh is a bit soft, OK when used with other fish seafood.
