ヒラメ ・ Flounder

2015.11.23 (Mon)


Caught in the coastal waters of the Sea of Japan, this flounder (hirame) is the classic example of a white-meat fish, with a chewy consistency and a light, pleasant and savory taste. As the prominent fish raised in Tottori’s fish farming industry, this flounder has been designated as the official fish of Tottori Prefecture. Additionally, the Tottori Prefectural Fisheries Research Center in Yurihama’s Ishikawa district is known for successfully incubating the world’s first cloned flounder.
