Pangasius skin is known as a by-product of the frozen pangasius fillet processing industry, mainly used to produce animal feed. However, this is a nutritious food source, rich in collagen and gelatin, which can be processed into many value-added products, contributing to improving the value of pangasius.

According to the survey, every 35 tons of pangasius fillets is equivalent to 100 tons of input materials. On average, a pangasius processing factory wastes about 5-8 tons of pangasius skin per day.

Exporting pangasius skin snack not only reduces the amount of by-products from seafood processing but also brings economic resources to farmers.
