It is the largest fish-eating nation in the world, consuming 7. 5 billion tons of fish a year, or about 10 percent of the world’s catch. This is the equivalent of 30 kilograms a year per person. Their nearest rivals the Scandinavians consume only around 15 kilograms per person. The Japanese consume so much fish that Japan has traditionally controlled the world prices for seafood with it huge demand. Fish and a variety of other sea creatures are caught by local fishermen, imported and raised in aqua farms.
There are around 200,000 fishing vessels in Japan. Of these about 2,000 fish for tuna and bonito. Sixty-six percent of the fish consumed in Japan is domestically caught. Even so Japan relies on imports for about half of its annual consumption of seafood, about 7. Japan and China are the largest fishing nations. By some measures China has surpassed Japan in recent years but most of the fish that the Chinese consume are freshwater fish raised in fish farms. The Japanese eat mostly sea fish.
By other measures Japan is still the largest fishing nation. Still the Japanese fishing industry is on the decline. 8 million tons of fish in 1984 but only 6. 35 million tons in 2000 and 5. 54 million tons of fish, double what it imported in 1984. Fish consumption dropped around 15 percent in the 1990s, largely because of the time and difficulty in preparing it. The number of fishmongers in Tokyo declined 53 percent to 1,130 between 1980 and 2000. Fish were traditionally used to fertilize rice fields and today symbolize the hope of an abundant harvest.

Countries that used to catch large amounts of fish and export it to Japan are now keeping the fish for themselves. Japan has become increasingly reliant on imported fish as fish stocks in its territorial waters have declined and the price of imported fish had dropped making it an attractive alternative to locally-caught fish. Japan’s seafood self sufficiency rate has declined from a peak of 113 percent in 1964 to 59 percent in 2006. Tuna, salmon and shrimp are among the most widely consumed seafoods. Worried about supplies and high prices, the Japanese government is urging people to eat more locally-caught fish to reduce Japan’s dependance on imported fish and especially encouraging people to eat seasonal fish’such as bonito in the spring, squid and saury the autumn and yellowtail snapper in the summer—whose catches are usually abundant.
