Farm-raising innovation at the Uwakai Sea: Miraculous sea bream
The town of Ainan in Uwa County in Ehime Prefecture, located at the southwestern end of Shikoku, is blessed with the Tropical sun. The current created by the Pacific Ocean on the south and the Bungo Channel on the west makes it one of the greatest offshore fishing grounds in Japan. The rich sea known as a very beautiful fishing ground thanks to the inflow of the Black Current creates the best water temperature and farm-raising environment for the year-round fostering of madai (red sea bream).
The secret of deliciousness of Ainan Usa-no Tai (Sea bream), a joint project with a local producer Usa Suisan that has a solid farm-raising experience and elaborately-accumulated data making full use of IT, starts from selecting juvenile fishes that are good in color, have resistance to fish disease, and homogeneous in shape.
We aim at farm-raising that does not rely on chemicals as much as possible, feed our own raw materials using processed peptide and powder compound feedstuffs developed based on accumulated experience, conduct farm-raising under a stress-free environment for fish by maintaining the appropriate fostering density, and focus on stable production of healthy and beautiful fish. Ainan Usa-no Tai, which is said to be especially high in quality in this area, is one of the brands sold by Tokai Seapro.
Moderate fresh-crunchy texture and unique rich taste are realized not only with our farm-raising techniques but also through maintaining the high freshness by quickly cooling the fish body temperature evenly (2 degrees C) just after harvesting. By doing so, we aim at delivering the fish to customers nationwide in a fresh and high-quality condition.
One of the best characteristics of sea bream is that it generally contains a lot of glutamic acid and inosinic acid that are the bases of umami.
Currently, the fish is used by customers in the food-service industry such as mass retailers, Japanese-style pubs, sushi-go-round restaurants, etc. throughout Japan not only for raw foods such as sashimi (sliced raw fish), shabushabu (hot pot using thinly-sliced meat) and salad but also for various other purposes including fillet, grilled fish and boiled fish. It can be also used as an ingredient for taimeshi (mixed rice with sea bream). In accordance with the various needs of customers nationwide, we deliver products with the most appropriate quality and processing method.
