ヒラメ ・ Flounder

2015.11.23 (Mon)

ヒラメ

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.

沿岸海域で捕れる、白身魚の代表格。シコシコとした歯応えがあり、淡白さの中にうまみがあります。鳥取県の栽培漁業の主役であることから県魚に指定されています。石脇地区にある鳥取県栽培漁業センターで世界初のクローンヒラメのふ化に成功したことでも有名です。
