Shimaaji name breaks down to "shima" striped and aji "jack". Most restaurants use farmed Shimaaji due to it being raised with extreme care and pristine waters. Shimaaji tastes like a cross between saba (mackerel) and kanpachi (greater amberjack, like leaner yellowtail). It's light and buttery with very tender flesh and just a bit of fat. When very fresh, it has a firm texture and finishes with sweet notes. Average size that we carry is 3.00LB.
