Cage and pond aquaculture systems are used for both basa and swai; use of one system over the other depends on the country (Table 1). Fry are wild-caught or hatchery-reared, and kept in ponds until the grow-out stage (Figure 3). Fish reach marketable size at 1 ? 1.5 kg (Hung et al. 2003) after about 8 months of culture, starting from fingerlings (approximately 2 months of age) (Edwards et al. 2004).
