Until what temperature can I sous vide the meat in their own packaging?
Our packaging is sous-vide ready (the process of cooking meat in their packaging in hot water for a prolonged time) for water temperatures up to 95°C (200°F). We do not recommend temperatures close to the boiling point but temperatures around 60°C (140°F) with a cooking period between 45 minutes and 3 hours, depending on the type and thickness of the meat.

Wild-caught Great Pacific Octopus meat, straight from the untamed and unspoiled waters of Hokkaido, Japan. 1 pack includes 1 large tentacle portion equaling 600g (1.3lbs). The octopus is boiled until medium-rare just after it's caught, and then flash-frozen to preserve freshness and quality. Simply slice once the octopus is partially thawed and enjoy the unrivaled umami flavor and subtle sweetness of octopus sashimi. Enjoy world-class seafood from humane fishing specialists in the comfort of your own home.

Although giant Pacific octopus fishing numbers have been declining over the years, the producer of this product, Mr. Ogasawara, has established strict resource management rules to ensure that the business can continue for the next 100 years. His ideas and rules for sustainability are shared with local fishermen to promote widespread sustainability in octopus catching.

✔ Sourced from Tomamae, Hokkaido near the Musashi Bank - one of Japan's prime fishing grounds

✔ Caught by barrel-drift fishing method using a restricted number of traps to prevent overfishing

✔ Typical catch size for this species is 2.5kg, but Mr. Ogasawara processes fully matured 10kg octopus to aid in population recovery

✔ Boiled immediately after catching and flash frozen to preserve quality

✔ This variety of octopus is characterized by its tender texture due to the high water content in its body

This product is a full, uncut octopus tentacle. We also offer this octopus in a dice cut variety.

About Hokkaido Octopus

This octopus comes from an area of Japan's northern island, Hokkaido, known as Tomamae town. Tomamae is well known for its prime fishing area. It is also known for strong winds, strong enough that renewable wind energy has allowed the town to achieve a self-sufficiency rate of 500%.

Mr. Osagawara, who supplies this octopus, has established a set of rules for sustainable fishing with the intention of preserving the sea creatures in a way that will allow his rural fishing community to still be catching them 100 years in the future. Having shared his vision with other fishermen, they now record weight, size, and quantity of all the octopus they catch, as well as the number of workdays and lost fishing gear. If the population of octopus ever falls below the established threshold, they will halt operation until the population is restored. Under project name ReTAKO, fishermen all around Tomamae follow these guidelines for safe and sustainable octopus fishing.
