Spanish mackerel is a standard Japanese name common throughout the country, but in Ishikawa Prefecture, Spanish mackerel actually refers to marlin. For many years, very few Spanish mackerel were caught in the waters of Ishikawa, so marlin came to be called Spanish mackerel. However, since around 2000, the number of Spanish mackerel landed in Ishikawa waters has increased rapidly due to rising sea surface temperatures due to recent global warming. The catch is now one of the highest in Japan, but because there is no custom of eating Spanish mackerel, it is not consumed locally, and much of it is shipped outside the prefecture. In this event, “The secret expedition of Japanese Spanish mackerel!”, we will start from Kanazawa Port and visit Wakasa Bay in neighboring Fukui Prefecture, where the Japanese Spanish mackerel catch ranks No. 1 in Japan, to investigate the background behind the increase in the Japanese Spanish mackerel catch in Hokuriku. To do. We planned a program to experience and learn about the sea, including a fish market tour, sea kayaking, and a ride on the training vessel Unryumaru with students from Fukui Prefectural Wakasa High School.
At the end of the expedition, Ishikawa developed a new fast food menu using Spanish mackerel, an “unused fish.” Aiming to help expand local consumption, we plan to sell products in stores based on menus created by the children.
