Epinephelus bruneus

The longtooth grouper is a fish belonging to the order Perciformes, Serranidae, and Epinephelus, and the adult fish is a large fish of 1 m in length and over 40 kg in weight. It is the most delicious of the grouper and is attracting attention as a high-class fish traded at a high price of 6,000 to 15,000 yen per 1 kg.

Although eels are caught almost all year round, their best season is winter and they are especially used in Wakayama as an expensive foodstuff, such as "Longtooth grouper hot pot". If you remove the skin, there is thick fat under the skin, but the taste is light white fish, the meat is firm and hard, the texture is good and it has a strong taste, and the sashimi which is thinly made like fugu is one of the best.

Kishu is known for its "King grouper hotpot" but in recent years, the number of wild fish caught has decreased dramatically, making it an expensive dish that cannot be easily eaten at home. Oseto Suisan will continue to make further efforts so that you can enjoy delicious longtooth grouper hot pot in your own home.

シマアジ

Pseudocaranx dentex

High-grade striped jack of the family Carangidae occurs in the Pacific Ocean south of Iwate Prefecture, and its young have a vertical yellow line that fades as they grow.

It is said that it eats bottom organisms other than fishes and squids because it swims around shore reefs and sandy bottom, and digs sand bottom by extending its mouth.

In recent years, it has also succeeded in cultivating fish, but the skin of adult fish is weak and easily damaged, so it requires experience and technology to manage it before shipping.
