Tonegawa River, is one of Japan’s eminent large rivers. The offshores of the Choshi port, which is located at the estuary of the River is one of the world’s few harvest-yielding seas due to the convergence of the Kurile current (a cold current) with the Japanese current (a warm current) and the Tonegawa river. These waters see scores of small fish that eat the abundant plankton, and the alfonsino off of the Choshi port grow throughout the year into a well-marbled, high-quality fish due to the abounding nutrients. The high-quality brand appeal is seeing a sharp increase in recent years even in the Toyosu market. Each alfonsino is hand-caught by day fishermen using handlines. Of those fish that have been caught, skilled evaluators with years of experience select only those of the highest quality to distribute in the United States.
