Native to the northwestern Pacific Ocean from Japan to Hawaii, the yellowtail (also known as amberjack) will grow up to 40kg, but the bulk of the fish harvested range from 3 to 5kg. Yellowtail farming makes up nearly 60% of Japan’s entire aquaculture industry. It is mostly consumed as Sashimi. Yellowtail is generally harvested between June and December. It is well suited for farming, as it handled easily, grows quickly, has well-understood nutritional requirements, and has a high commercial value. The English terms for Hamachi and Kanpachi are “yellowtail” and “amberjack”, respectively, but because yellowtail can also be called “Japanese amberjack”, overseas sushi diners sometimes think they’re the same fish. Nowadays, most Japanese would tell you that Hamachi is farmed and small, and “Buri” is wild and large. However it’s not really that simple, as wild “Hamachi” is still available. Since the farmed Hamachi are raised in nets immersed in the sea, they do not get as much exercise as wild yellowtail, and become fatty, with soft muscles and lighter colored flesh. Wild Hamachi is smaller and darker, with firmer flesh. Some people prefer the firmer texture of wild Hamachi, while others like the fattier farmed product. Despite being called “Hamachi” on the menu of sushi shops and at the fish counter in retail stores, the packages of farmed yellowtail are labeled “Buri” in Japanese (ぶり).
