Sushi grade yellowtail (hamachi)

A great place to buy yellowtail (hamachi). Yellowtail, or hamachi, is a fatty, delicate fish raised specifically for sushi and sashimi in Japan. A relative of tuna, hamachi is known as an “affluent” fish; much like Kobe beef, they are raised in a relaxed, pampered environment promoting a fatty and delicate texture. The benefit of farming is a higher fat content and improved quality of meat.
