A species of fish in Vietnam is sought after by the whole world because it owns an organ that is “more precious than gold”, the fisherman’s catch is life changing!
With diverse terrain, long coastline and interlaced river system, Vietnam’s nature is fortunate to nurture many precious aquatic species that other regions rarely have. Topping the list of rare fish in Vietnam is the golden effervescent fish, which is sought after by the whole world. The value of goldfish can be up to billions of dong, due to owning a special fish bubble. 1kg of fresh yellow effervescent fish bubbles is from 45,000 – 55,000 USD/kg, equivalent to 1 – 1.25 billion VND/kg. The fish weighs 40 – 50kg, the fish ball will fall to about 1kg fresh.

Dried goldfish bubbles are hunted by the rich

Tasty yellow fish meat, expensive, but the most valuable is the bubble part. The reason the golden effervescent fish balls touch prices from 45,000 to 55,000 USD/kg is because they are used as self-dissolving sutures in medical care. Only self-dissolving from yellow fish bubbles does not cause tissue damage, minimizing the risk of infection for the patient.
