Galicia asks for strengthened import control on pangasius

SPAIN

The Galician Government will ask the central government to more thoroughly inspect imports of pangasius from Southeast Asia, due to numerous flaws that were spotted during a source control.

The announcement was made by the Health Department of Galicia, in a written statement sent to the parliamentary group of the Popular Party (PP).

Within Spain, those responsible for these controls are the Border Inspection Points (PIF), assigned to the Ministry of Health and Social Policy and the Ministry of Public Administration, said the PP.

The regional government agreed to establish a line of security screening for pangasius (also known as tra or Asian catfish), and also arrange and manage alerts that may occur as a result of the detection of food safety issues.

In other cases, the PP parliamentary initiatives promoted by the Galician Government are a result of the "repeated warnings" related to the entry of the product.

Alerts occurred "after detecting the presence of chemical, physical and microbiological contaminants in multiple imports of the fish," said the PP, according to La Opinión.

Specifically, in 2005 there were 48 alerts, in 2006 there were 15, in 2007 there were 4 and in 2009 there were a total of three alerts.

For its part, the General Directorate of Public Health and Planning asked the Government to analyze samples from third countries before they are sold in Galician markets.

Spain is the second largest European importer of pangasius from Asia, behind Russia.

According to statistics presented at a recent conference held in Baiona, frozen pangasius products, along with fresh cod, were the products that experienced the largest increase in consumption last year.

The pangasius was used as a substitute for other resources captured by the Galician fleet, such as hake and halibut, according to the PP, which is an "unfair competition" due to the low price that they are traded for in Spanish markets.

"This has happened despite the fact that it is clear that their nutritional qualities, health and hygiene are very dubious, especially when compared to the total guarantees offered by Galician seafood," says the PP.

PP spokesman Jose Manuel Balseiro said that one of the "keys to the success" of panga is its "good looks," though "it is clear that their nutritional qualities, health and hygiene are very poor."
