Did You Know? - The Japanese amberjack or yellowtail, Seriola quinqueradiata, is a bony fish in the family Carangidae. It is native to the northwest Pacific Ocean, from Japan to Hawaii and Baja California.

It is greatly appreciated in Japan, where it is called hamachi or buri (鰤). They are eaten either cooked or raw, and are a seasonal favourite in the colder months when the meat must have higher fat content. Amberjack is typically thought of as a winter delicacy of Toyama and the Hokuriku region.

Some of the fish consumed are caught wild, but a substantial amount is farmed (about 120,000 tonnes per year). To populate the farms, every May, farmers fish for the small wild fry (called mojako), which can be found under floating seaweed. They scoop out the seaweed together with the mojako and put the mojako in cages in the sea.
