Shima Aji, also known as the striped jack, is the tastiest and highest-grade fish among the horse mackerels! With its characteristics of being naturally fatty and having no “fishy” smell, it’s popular in both Japanese and Western-style cooking. Farm-raised in Japan and processed using the “ikijime” technique, which preserves its freshness and quality,

Rumi Japan is located in Imabari, Shikoku, and has been operating as a seafood wholeseller in the Kurushima Strait for over forty years. Known for its fast-flowing currents and clear waters, the Kurushima Strait is an ideal fishing ground, and Rumi Japan’s 3 Foundations of Safety, Traceability, and Tastiness is supported by the HACCP (as one of only 4 Japanese companies to have obtained EU HACCP certification), as well as BRC (England), FDA (United States) & ISO9001-2008 certifications to promote Japan’s healthy dietary culture world-wide.

Ikijime is a precise process of humanely and immediately killing the fish when caught, resulting in lower levels of stress as the body goes limp which prevents the build-up of lactic acid that sours the flavor of the fish, as well as ensuring the blood in the flesh retreats to the gut cavity which produces a better colored fillet and a better taste. The fish is then swiftly bled and frozen or placed in an ice slurry, which further improves the flesh quality and grants a longer storage life.

Preparations:  Sashimi, Teriyaki, Grilling, Carpaccio
