280g (9.8oz) of BAP-certified, sashimi-grade red seabream fillets from Ehime, Japan. Fresh frozen and vacuum packed within 30 minutes of processing - meaning they are incredibly fresh. We highly recommend eating as sushi or sashimi as it is safe to eat raw. The skin and bones have been removed so you can eat right away with very minimal preparation needed. Also delicious when baked or steamed with your favorite veggies. Red seabream has a mild yet refreshing and luxurious taste with a soft texture.
✔ Responsibly and domestically farmed sea bream without the use of any antibiotics.
✔ Raised in the open Pacific Ocean in an area inside the "Kuroshio Current" - which has a constant supply of high-oxygen water making it the perfect environment for raising sea bream.
✔ Large and spacious farming areas allow for relaxed and comfortable rearing.
✔ A blower is used to spread the food over a wide area so that the sea bream do not collide with each other, which greatly reduces stress on the fish.
✔ Frozen fresh and immediately delivered to the processing facility just 5 minutes away. Vacuum packed within 30 minutes of being processed for ultimate freshness.

This seabream is sustainably farmed in the clean waters of Ehime prefecture without the use of antibiotics. During feeding, a blower is used to spread the feed over a wide area to prevent the fish from colliding with each other, therefore creating a stress-free environment. After collection, the fish are chilled immediately after being transported to the processing facility only 5 minutes from the shores. Cut and vacuum sealed within 30 minutes to ensure maximum freshness.
Farmed in an environmentally friendly manner and has received the 2-star BAP (Best Aquaculture Practice) certification, which is given to marine products that are produced with strict environmental guidelines. The farming area is a part of the "Kuroshio Current" which flows into the inland sea creating a nutrient-rich and oxygen-rich aquaculture fishing ground that is ideal for sea bream farming. Super fresh, sustainable, and delicious. Taste the difference.
Very nice flavour and texture fish, easy to grill, no smell. I usually prefer to buy wild- caught fish but these seem to be a high quality for farmed fish.
