Default JoeyPattis Restaraunt - Bosa?

Ate at Joey Pattis last nite and the fresh fish of the day was Bosa(?) The cashier stated it was a white fish with the taste of Grouper. Tasted more like Catfish out of the river. Anybody know what kind of fish this was, shrimp was good but that fish was awful.

I've heard that name tossed around at several restaurants lately when questioning them about there menu"Grouper" whatever, ( I have learned the hard way to ask now )......... To me the texture and taste is sorta like Tilapia on steriods ( a lot thicker, similar taste ).......... I know the diff in dressed out price is about $3+ a pound versus $10+ for real grouper... Not sure if the following is the same fish as you described, but your taste bud's were right on if it is...............<H1 class=firstHeading id=firstHeading>Basa fish</H1><DIV id=bodyContent><H3 id=siteSub>From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia</H3><DIV id=contentSub></DIV><DIV id=jump-to-nav>Jump to: navigation, search</DIV><TABLE class="infobox biota" style="PADDING-RIGHT: 2px; PADDING-LEFT: 2px; PADDING-BOTTOM: 2px; WIDTH: 200px; PADDING-TOP: 2px; TEXT-ALIGN: center"><TBODY><TR style="TEXT-ALIGN: center"><TH style="BACKGROUND: #d3d3a4">Basa fish</TH></TR><TR style="TEXT-ALIGN: center"><TD></TD></TR><TR style="BACKGROUND: #d3d3a4"><TH>Conservation status</TH></TR><TR><TD><DIV style="TEXT-ALIGN: center">Secure</DIV></TD></TR><TR style="TEXT-ALIGN: center"><TH style="BACKGROUND: #d3d3a4">Scientific classification</TH></TR><TR style="TEXT-ALIGN: center"><TD><TABLE style="BACKGROUND: none transparent scroll repeat 0% 0%; MARGIN: 0px auto; TEXT-ALIGN: left" cellPadding=2><TBODY><TR vAlign=top><TD>Kingdom:</TD><TD><SPAN class=kingdom>Animalia

The basa fish, Pangasius bocourti, is a type of catfish in the family Pangasiidae. Basa are native to the Mekong River Delta in Vietnam and Chao Phraya basin in Thailand.<SUP class=reference id=cite_ref-Fishbase_0-0>[1]</SUP> These fish are important food fish with an international market.

This is why I don't deal with any of the Joe Pattie's brands.

Frank claims that imports ruined thelocal seafood supply, but he is lying out of his ass. They import cheap crap to sell locally and export all of the high-quality local seafood to New York or Canada were it is worth three times as much. The customer along with the fishermen get shafted and ol' Franky makes a pile of money.

Basa is from the Maekong river. If you look hard enough on the internet you will see that these catfish are raised in pins and are loaded with heavy antibiotics to speed their growth. And what people do not realize that what is up river is a large village that dead bodies and fecal matter is going in the river. Also I have seen a fish that is even a lower grade that Basa called Suchi that is served in some of the restaurants in lower Alabama. And when you ask the waitress what kind of fish it is she will tell you it is a saltwater fish from America. That is BS.:nonono

The guys that owns the 9 mile store is a crook. He served time one in the federal pen for ripping people of and was recently jailed again on simular charges. He has ripped off many suppliers and contractors in the area. BEWARE!!!!!!!

Also, whether you like them or not, Capt. Joey Pattis has nothing to do with Joe Patti's seafood other than having a similar name.

BASA is one of the reasons our catfish farming is in the shotter. I've had friends in walnut hill shutdown 'cause they can't compete with the low cost of importing these crap fish.

They may taste fine for some, but I won't be eating them. They make me sick just thinking about all the people in this country that are hurt by these imports.

The same with the shrimp they import. I'd pay fives times as much if I had to just to support our local suppliers that sell local seafood, or any from this country.
