November 5th saw the first haul of Sakura ebi/Cherry blossom Shrimp of the Autumn being auctioned at Yui Harbour and Oikawa Fish Market.
12 tonnes were sold, that is about three times as much as last year.
Stocks have been plentiful thanks to very strict enforcement of catch limits self-imposed by the Sakura Ebi Fishermen Association, the first-ever such association in the whole of Japan to impose such voluntary limits of their catches!
Sakura Ebi are exclusively caught in the middle of Suruga Bay.
They are sucked into the boats directly from the nets, ensuring a later release of all unwanted catch live and unharmed into the sea.
Who said the Japanese were depopulating the sea?

Sashimi Set: Nodaya


The Japan Blog List

Nodaya in Shizuoka City is renown as an “odenya” (oden are all kinds of food slowly cooked in broth), but they serve sashimi that would grace any good Japanese restaurant tables!

From right to left:
“Buri/yellowtail”, “Ishidai/Seabream variety”, “Akami/Tuna lean part”, “Hirame/sole” and “Isaki/Grouper variety”.


“Ishidai/Seabream variety”


and “Isaki/Grouper variety” are two typical Shizuoka Suruga Bay fish. Although both fish are fairly common here, they will fetch good prices in Tokyo. Being able to eat them regularly at reasonable price here is certainly a boom!
