I never get bored by tuna or by eating tuna and tuna is the center of the fish universe. Driven by the annual spring festival in April and May, there was strong demand for sashimi tuna in restaurants.
Air-flown in imports of fresh tuna in Japan were at a record low during the first quarter of the year, demonstrating a 14% reduction at 5.800 tonnes compared with the same time period last year. Supplies fell for all types of tuna except for bluefin and southern bluefin, for which the quantity is relatively small. It seems the Japanese market is slowly moving away from whole/dressed fresh tuna to frozen loins, which has a longer storage life.
