It is a fish that has a brownish body color and is a member of hamachi. There is a black line on the head that looks like eyebrows, and it looks like a figure of eight when viewed from the front. Due to its warm sea habitat, there is little natural catch in the prefecture, but aquaculture is abundant alongside hamachi and red sea bream. Seedlings bred in other prefectures for about one year are cultivated, and the cultivation period is carried out in the high water temperature period preferred by amberjack, so they are shipped in a shorter time than hamachi.

Amberjack is characterized by fat on the firmness of meat, but you can enjoy a light and refreshing taste. Because the body is good and hard to discolor, the sashimi keeps vivid colors. It is a great dish even if the body with fat is nigiri and grilled with salt. It is a popular fish that you can often find in supermarkets from September to December.
