The world's no. 1 seafood group imported a 40 percent increase in the import of baxanfish.
The fish is on fire again, as the world's first seafood group, maru hashiu, is expanding its imports to make up for the shortfall.
According to Japanese customs statistics, in the first 11 months of 2017, 5,500 tons of frozen barshas were imported from Japan, up 30% from the same period last year, mainly from Vietnam. It is estimated that in the fiscal year of 2017, the volume of the maruhari group will import about 1,000 tons, a 40% increase from the previous year.
In recent years, Japanese pollock and salmon fishing situation is not ideal, production decline year by year, led to its domestic supermarkets and retailers need to find similar, the price is right, stable supply alternatives. Because the price is nearly 20% lower than that of the pollock fish, the supply of aquaculture products is relatively stable, so the fish is "on the top".
Japan is likely to become a further market for Vietnamese baasha exporters in the context of a declining number of imports from the United States and Europe. What about the Japanese market, which is notoriously strict about food requirements, and what is the regulation of the baxanfish bubble?
