Pangasianodon hypophthalmus Pangasius are primarily cultured in high density ponds and the Mekong delta in Vietnam is at the centre of current production. Pangasius has become a popular aquaculture species across the Asia-Pacific region.
Pangasius production has grown rapidly since the mid-2000s, and is likely to develop further. Global production in 2016 was almost 2.5 million tonnes.
