Abstract
  • This paper reviews the history of fish marketing in Japan. The Japanese experience is rich in terms of long history, species handled, products forms, cooking methods, ways of utilization, and interaction with domestic fisheries. Along with the change of people's life style from hunting to farming, marketing and trade have developed. The self-sufficiency rate of fishermen was less than that of farmers, resulting in active fishermen's marketing involvement. Salt has been the basic good among tradable fisheries commodities and enriched human life. Processed fisheries commodities have been used as offerings, tax, and military food due to their scarcity and preservability. Traditional marketing and trade include commercialization of dried, smoked, salted, and fermented seafood; seasonings; seasoned boiled seafood; and organic fertilizer. Modern marketing and trade include commercialization of cultured species, fish paste, canned fish, frozen/fresh/live fish, fish oil/fish meal/fertilizer, and potential resource species. Cultural and food diversity is essential for the human survival in the 21st century. Despite the conventional use of fish, most marine organisms are not utilized yet. As healthy food, drugs, raw materials, ornamental use, and contribution to solving environmental problems, there is a great potential in fisheries and fish trade if the resources are wisely managed under the WTO framework started in 1994.
