Panga Fish (available in Polish stores); I'll never eat it again. Alternative?

Yes - I have watched probably the same. I don't take any salmon to my mouth since then, and it was my favorite fish. The fresh trout is the best in my mountainous areas.

The simple trick is to stick to local food as opposed to exotics - the closer to the source, the better simply because it requires less processing which is the real culprit in out diets... not to mention the environmental impact involved in transport alone...

Global Fish in central Poland has become the world's first recirculated aquaculture system (RAS) tilapia farm to achieve Aquaculture stewardship Council (ASC) certification.
(Standing ovation with loud cheers)
Tilapia is one of the most eaten fish in Poland because of its availability and low cost.
Tilapia can equal the panga in terms of toxic content.
The panga is at the top of the list of fish with the highest content of toxins.
However, it's being quickly overtaken by the well-known, likable, and affordable tilapia.
Species imported from Vietnam and China, including tilapia meat, a higher concentration of lead was detected compared to other fish.
The tilapia also contained mercury, cadmium and lead. (Yummy)
Never buy frozen tilapia imported from Vietnam, China, Indonesia, or Honduras.
Tilapia is naturally found in Africa, but the ones that end up in Polish stores often come from farms in polluted waters of Asia.
Tilapia farms also exist in Europe, (Central Poland) and the fish from these European farms have been found to have low levels of mercury contamination.

It contains urine from pregnant women? Does that mean I can eat a meal while at the same time indulging in my secret passions for prego and watersports?

Harry/Lazarus, we fail to see your immature drunken humor.

Walleye and perch are the best IMO

Freaking commercial Fish names suck! If someone gives a fish a bad name; they change it to something else. That said they call this fish Basa here and it is quite good. Of course we do not let them ship in fish raised on a crap diet here so we do not have Health issues. Vietnamese freshwater Catfish is what it is.

BTW the real Panga is a small to medium saltwater rayfin fish. Great eating but rarely sold commercially. Think Bream or Perch
