MSC-certified Pole-and-Line
Skipjack Tuna Goes on Sale

Organic food delivery services provider DAICHI WO MAMORUKAI (in English, The Association to Preserve the Earth) started on March 29, 2010, to sell Tosakatsuo Suisan's pole-and-line skipjack tuna products, certified by the international Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). The seafood produced by the local fishery group from Kochi Prefecture is the first of its kind allowed to use the MSC's seafood eco-label.

The MSC is a UK-based global organization that supports environmentally friendly and well-managed fisheries through its certification and eco-labeling program for sustainable seafood.

The practice of pole-and-line fishing, a traditional and environment-conscious technique, is in decline nowadays, as less-expensive imported fish dominate the market. Through marketing of the skipjack tuna products, DAICHI WO MAMORUKAI intends to inform consumers about the importance of the fishing practice, a proud tradition among Japanese fishermen since ancient times.

vegetable factory

Vegetable factories in Japan
They grow in artificial light,usually in outdated factory rooms. Everything is controlled, humidity, temperature, carbon dioxid emission and all. The produce is about double the price than other natural grown stuff, but it is the same throughout the year.
There are now about 30 of this kind, but the ministry wants to encourage more than 150.

CLICK me  !The statue of Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Colonel Sanders had been recovered in March from a river in Osaka, 24 years after frenzied Hanshin Tigers fans threw the statue into the river when the baseball team won the Central League championship. The statue is 180 cm high and weighs 26 kg.
It has been consecrated in a Shinto Shrine in Osaka.
Fans of Japanese baseball’s Hanshin Tigers hoped to exorcize a 24-year “curse” today by honoring a statue of Colonel Sanders at a local shrine. A turnaround by the team might aid business in the region, as economist hope.
