The reason we use Basa is because we love its flaky texture and how well it absorbs flavour. All our basa is farmed in ponds which are river-fed.
Also, fun fact: basa isn't a type of shark – the generic term "Shark" is applied to many fish that have a similar body shape found all over the world. Freshwater Sharks are not true sharks. They're typically catfish or relatives of carp.
