How Sojitz Corporation joined the Bluefin tuna farming industry.

Our parent company, Sojitz Corporation, has more than thirty years of experience importing tuna.
While Sojitz Group previously imported various types of tuna from the Mediterranean, Indian, and Pacific Oceans, depletion of tuna populations has led to the implementation of fishing regulations in multiple countries.
At the same time, breakthroughs were beginning to emerge in Japan’s bluefin tuna farming, a field of research which has been studied for the past two decades.
Under these circumstances, Sojitz Group determined to enter the bluefin tuna farming business to provide a stable supply of safe, high-quality bluefin tuna.
