IN BRIEF - Miyagi Yogin price starts high, trading at 1,100 yen per kilogram

Tuesday, March 07, 2023

Farmed coho salmon from Miyagi Prefecture was landed for the first time this year at the Ishinomaki fish market on the 3rd, and was traded at a high price of over 1,100 yen per kilo.

Coho salmon from Miyagi Prefecture landed for the first time at the Ishinomaki Fish Market (5:30 am on the 3rd) -->

Although there were concerns about the impact of the decline in the price of the competing Chilean product, the popularity of the Miyagi product, which is excellent in freshness and quality, is exceptional. The spread of the new coronavirus has subsided, economic activity has become active, and the supply of fresh fish has generally decreased. While some buyers were worried about the negative spread, producers said, "Amid high prices, this is the best encouragement."

A farmer at Ayukawa Beach in Ishinomaki City landed 7.1 tons (approximately 5,000 fish). All of them are ice-cold products, and Ishinomaki Fish Market put up a bid as its own brand "Kinka Gin", which is quickly processed with clean and sterilized seawater ice. The weight of one fish was mainly 1.2 to 1.5 kilograms.
