The finest greater amberjack from Mitsumi Suisan

Mitsumi Suisan farms greater amberjack in Tarumizu City, at the foot of Sakurajima in Kagoshima. Kagoshima Prefecture is well known as the largest greater amberjack aquaculture area in Japan. In fact, the average annual water temperature in Kagoshima Bay (Kinko Bay), which is in the southernmost bay of the mainland, is 22 degrees Celsius. It is the perfect environment for cultivating greater amberjack, which prefer warm water. Mitsumi Suisan carefully raises greater amberjack from fry in a large fish cage with lots of deep water, so they grow as healthy as in the wild. We hope you will enjoy our top-quality greater amberjack directly delivered from our farm.

Uncompromising farming

Mitsumi Suisan emphasizes the feeding according to the condition of greater amberjack as it grows. We carefully monitor the size and condition of the fish and select foods with vitamin C and plenty of other nutrients, so they grow into healthy, elegantly flavored, superb greater amberjack.

The careful breeding and thorough quality control that is possible only with aquaculture allows us to deliver high quality greater amberjack for being reliable and safe.

Taste that only Mitsumi Suisan can create

The characteristic of Mitsumi’s greater amberjack is the taste. We have applied for trademark rights for our unique cultivation method of greater amberjack, which achieves a rich umami flavor that can only be created by Mitsumi Suisan through feeding with shochu (distilled spirit) lees.

When we conducted a taste study with the cooperation of a specialized institution, we were able to demonstrate that there is a difference in taste values between Mitsumi fish and other greater amberjack. Compared to other greater amberjack, the umami richness value of Mitsumi’s product is significantly higher, and it retains clear, high-quality meat for a long time. It is hard to find a greater amberjack differentiated by its taste.

Rich in pleasant savory taste and mild flavor

Greater amberjack has a rich flavor and is regarded as much more delicious than tuna in sashimi dishes. Greater amberjack is best served as sashimi because it does not have a strong smell but has a rich flavor. The fresher it is, the richer the fat that melts in your mouth, and the more firmly textured it is. The fish has an elegant flavor that is not too strong, even if you keep eating it.

A multitude of delicious recipes

Compared with other blue-backed fish, greater amberjack has no particular strong flavor but has an elegant taste. That’s why, it can be prepared for many different dishes such as carpaccio, fried, boiled, and grilled fish, as well as sushi and sashimi. Another key factor is that greater amberjack is landed year-round, so that its taste is stable throughout the year. You can get it without worrying about the season.
