Vietnam is expected to replace China as one of the primary processing origins of Japanese seafood to satisfy the U.S. market needs.

Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries said on Dec.1 that its scallop processing needs, previously done in China, would be transferred to Vietnam after discussions between the U.S. Embassy in Japan and several Japanese ministries and departments.

Other seafood processing opportunities are expected to evolve through cooperation between the three nations.

This comes after Beijing banned Japanese seafood products over concerns about “polluted water” discharged by Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant in August.

Beijing ignored the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) assessment that Japan’s wastewater disposal was safe and meets internationally recognized nuclear safety standards.

South Korea’s president, Yoon Suk Yeol, condemned Beijing’s smear campaign over the Fukushima water incident, while U.S. Ambassador to Japan, Rahm Emanuel, said  China's ban on Japanese seafood was a form of “economic coercion”.

Scallops are a mainstay of Japan’s seafood exports. Japanese official figures show that 30 percent of the export volume in 2022, about 140,000 tons, was exported to China.

Of these, about 28 percent, or 30,000-40,000 tons, were processed in China by shucking and freezing, then shipped to the United States.

China topped Japan’s list of top seafood and food-exporting countries and regions in 2022.
