Fish Species & Processing Forms
Our network of producers in Ehime and Kyushu is our greatest asset. Thanks to their support, we are able to supply safe delicious seafood to your table year round.
Ingredients for formula feed are imported from South America and equipment from Oceania. Fresh and frozen fish are exported to North America, Hong Kong, Thailand, and various Asian and Middle Eastern countries.
Our fresh processing facility,Kainan Seafood Center, is 1 hour by car to downtown Osaka and just 30 minutes to the Kansai International Airport. From here we can quickly deliver the freshest farmed fish not only throughout Japan, but to our overseas clients as well.
