Japanese Fish Seminar: Nagasaki Maguro


Dive right in and savour the freshest catch of Nagasaki! 

Hailing all the way from Kyushu, Japan, Kanda Wadatsumi brings you the tastiest maguro and hamachi.

Harvested in natural fisheries of Nagasaki, the fish boasts a unique texture. The secret of its flesh lies in the location where the fish is farmed. Nagasaki, having the greatest diversity of fish species in Japan, prides itself on having the second largest fishing haul.

In the coastal Nagasaki prefecture, these lean fish face strong currents from the Kuroshio (Black current), and hence develop firmer muscles that are a bright shade of red due to the high amounts of myoglobin present.

Tuna are full of omega-3 fatty acids, good fats which aid in improving heart health and lowering cholesterol. In addition, the fish is also packed with proteins and vitamins. With the right combination of highs and lows, this fish checks the list for all the health-conscious out there.

At the Fish Seminar, be transported to food heaven as the chef skillfully serves up a myriad of maguro and hamachi dishes. Get ready to be wowed- watch in awe as Chef Hara takes up the challenge of slicing a 50kg tuna right before your very eyes!

Apart from filling your bellies, get a glimpse into the industry and learn about how fresh fish is transported from Japan at the seminar.

Just can’t get enough of maguro? Fret not! Fans of the fatty tuna, rejoice~ This cosy restaurant works with the JF ZENGYOREN to bring in fresh, seasonal seafood and will be holding a food fair featuring the famed fish.
