Yearly operation of squid fishing boats (2017-2020)
An analysis of satellite imagery and automatic identification system (AIS) vessel tracking data shows that squid fishing vessels are expanding their operations in the world's uncontrolled seas. On the 10th, US time, the results of the research were published in the US scientific journal "Science Advances." 86% of squid fishing vessels operate outside exclusive economic zones (EEZs) or in waters not managed by Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs), reducing fishing effort by 68% in the four years surveyed from 2017 to 2020.

A new series of topical next-generation seafood "like a fish"! Joint development of plant-based “Maru Kanikama”
Azuma Foods Co., Ltd., entered into a business alliance with Fujimitsu Co., Ltd. for the sale of a new series that pursues not only commitment but also taste, Kamaboko) was jointly developed.

They have outstanding manufacturing technology and experience cultivated over many years, but they cannot survive without a stable supply of surimi raw materials. When thinking about delicious crab stick products looking ahead to the next 100 years, they decided to try to develop and manufacture “just like crab sticks” .
Crab? ! Crab bite? plant base? ? I made "Kanikama" with 100% vegetable base.
