Basa fish... is it a strong flavoured fish or relatively "normal"?

I'm looking at fiddling with this recipe using aussie native fish - notably those available in this inland "paradise" we inhabit - can you describe the characteristics for me? Salty or nay? etc..?

Basa is a beaute fish, not strong flavoured at all and have soft flesh and almost like ling in flavour but ling has firmer flesh. I don't like strong flavoured fish....too fishy. What is an aussie native fish?

Yup this is real good and takes minutes to cook. Used frozen green beans so ii can stock up and it's a meal I always have in the freezer on the ready.
