Fish and More
Believe or not, fish price is going up. Tuna is OK and cannot get good one. And the price is 10% higher than before. Calamari is getting short. Our supplier said, “ If we have inventory, just buy more otherwise we don’t know next shipping. “ I read some articles about this. China is a big factor of this food shortage and price up. The demand of fish in china is huge. And there are 30 million fishermen in China. They go to all over the world to catch fish. There is no rule. They break rules. They catch all of them from baby to adult fish.
And another story is global warming is going on inside of the ocean. California uni is gone for a while. It is because of global warming. I wrote this before. Uni eat seaweed, kelp. And seaweed and kelp grow under cold temperature. Sea temperature is high in Sanra Barbara area recently and there is no food for uni. Uni is there but uni cannot grow. This is really sad thing. So, we get uni from Japan recently. And Maine uni season is over. We tried Chilean uni but it was bad quality.
Today is Tuesday and we can get Fukuoka fish market from Japan. Kinme-Dai, Aka-Mutsu, Aji, Hamachi are coming.
I feel I cannot get good tuna for a while. I opened a new location for 3 weeks. There was no good tuna at all. This is also sad.
We opened the place on May 23 and passed 3 weeks. Business is not bad. And Friday and Saturday are very busy. Please make reservation. We could not take walk-in customers until 8:30pm last Saturday.
We are facing short of staff. We don’t have enough servers now. We might close lunch after school start in August. This is really bad but no choice so far. I ony have 2 hands and 2 feet. I cannot do everything by myself.
