Return to all

– Oct 1, 2020 –

Akamutsu is also known as Nodoguro (blackthroat) because its throat is black. It lives at a depth of 300 to 600 feet and is harvested in various parts of Japan, but the Akamutsu caught in western Japan has a reputation for its deliciousness! It is not a migratory fish and does not actually have a particular season, but instead, the quality depends on the individual fish. The larger the fish, the fattier it is, making it even more delicious!
