“Ratchetfish are freshwater fish. In the past, they appeared in some places of the western water areas such as Can Tho city, An Giang during the flood season. So people freely eat without thinking about the cost.
In the past few years, the locality has not had a floating season, so the fish have not spawned. People do not let fish catch mice in the wild, so they turn to new ones. But it’s not easy to raise them,” said Ngoc Phuoc (39 years old) – owner of a farm raising freshwater fish in An Giang.

Some of my gourmet friends in Saigon often drive to An Giang when they want to enjoy rattan fish or ask to buy it. It’s really hard to get a bunch of these fish because most of them have pre-orders.

Not only is it a type of fish that can be used to process many delicious dishes, but it is also rich in B vitamins (vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12). When eating fish, fish meat is soft, fatty and sweet, fish is easy to digest because fish contains less collagen.
