The Japanese Seafood Market 2015

Japan eats more seafood than any other industrialized nation in the world, and since wild catches have halved, imports have played an increasingly important role.  Meanwhile, an ageing population is playing havoc with the country's economy and the younger generation has dramatically different buying habits and species demands. The result? A rapidly changing marketplace.
