Why choose "Empurau"?
It is called "Empurau" because of its aroma of fruity fish oil. It is said that " Empurau" likes eating high-oil windmill palm fruits. And the frequent high-speed swimming makes the fish body tender and delicious. It is sought after by gourmets and becomes a dish that you must try in your lifetime.
Why do some people fly to Malaysia for a fresh taste?
Known as the ‘‘king of river fish’’, "Empurau" originated in Malaysia, also known as the "national fish" by the Malays. In China, it is called "the gold in water", which shows how precious it is. Many people bought frozen "Empurau", and some even flew to Malaysia to taste the fresh fish, until Smart Farming introduced "Empurau" to the Fung Ka Wai Fish Farm in Tin Shui Wai, providing customers with the opportunity to taste the fresh fish locally.
Why does "Empurau’’ eat avocado?
"Empurau" has an aroma of light fish oil and a unique fruity aroma. It is said that "Empurau" likes eating windmill palm fruits with high oil content. Windmill palm fruit is not native to Hong Kong and is difficult to obtain. Smart Farming has carried out research replacing windmill palm fruits with avocados, together with natural plant formulas and probiotics, to continue the aroma of "Empurau"!
Why does our fish farm imitate the river in primeval forest?
"Empurau" are wild and playful. Their "wings" are like surfboards or sails. We have made efforts in creating artificial water currents to let them swim at high speed, which increases the natural elements in aquaculture to help their growth! They have a high demand for oxygen because they like exercising. Thus, we have multiple oxygen pumps to provide them with sufficient dissolved oxygen.
Why is water quality the most important for aquaculture?
"Empurau" originated from the clear rivers in primeval forest. Therefore, it requires high water quality, which is different from ordinary fish. For example, the primeval rivers in Malaysia have a lot of humus, accordingly the water quality is slightly acidic. Therefore, in aquaculture we need to adjust the pH and mineral ratio of the water quality, and improve the clarity and transparency, and reduce the organic matter content. Moreover, Smart Farming’s fish farm has awarded the "Accredited Fish Farm" certification issued by the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department.
Why does "Empurau" taste different in four seasons?
The taste of "Empurau" changes with the seasons. They increase their food intake to prepare for the winter, thus the taste is plumper and richer. They consume more fish oil as they exercise more in hot summer, thus the taste is more refreshing and sweeter. If you want to eat lightly in summer, the refreshing "Empurau" will be your best choice!
Why do we recommend steaming "Empurau"?
Suitable for steaming to enjoy the original taste, the meat is plump, with a light fish oil aroma and fruity aroma, all due to our own research and development of natural plant formula with avocado.
