Why is Sea Bream so popular in Japan?

Sea Bream

“Auspicious fish”

Grilled Sea Bream served whole has long been considered an auspicious dish in Japan. The Japanese word for Sea Bream is “tai”, and the word for auspicious is “omede-tai”, so the play on these words made Sea Bream a popular dish for banquets and celebratory occasions.

What makes Tsuruga Red Sea Bream so delicious?

Tsuruga is facing the Sea of Japan, which is known for its rough winter seas and heavy snowfall. As the Sea Bream are cultivated in this harsh environment, they grow up healthy and strong with a vitality that can withstand sudden changes in water temperature.

Also, using natural and highly nutritious feed such as crab shells ensures that the fish grow naturally, with a high quality of meat and vibrant red color.
