As a rare fish, su vang is believed to have medicinal value.

In late November, Mr. Nguyen Tien Nhat in the central province of Quang Binh caught a su vang fish weighing 2,8kg at sea. He is breeding the fish at home. As the fish was defined as su vang, many traders called to buy the fish at the price of up to $25,000. However, they then said the fish is small and did not want to buy it. Therefore, Nhat is breeding the fish at home.

Earlier, a fisherman in Thai Binh province caught a su vang fish and sold it for $50,000.
