Packing

All striped catfish are exported at a size of 0.5g. They are twice the size of 1” tilapia and so the stocking density per box is reduced proportionately:

Destination Total transport time (hours) Fish packed per box
Thailand 6 to 10 1,800
Asia, close by 10 to 15 1,000
Asia, far 15 to 20 800
Middle East 15 to 20 800
Europe 25-35 600
Africa 30 – 45 400
U.S.A. 35 – 45 400

Nam Sai uses anesthetic to sedate striped catfish during transport, as, unlike tilapia, reducing temperature does not improve survival. Packing costs are charged at the same rate as for tilapia.
