Common Octopus / Giant Pacific Octopus

Bred in the rough seas of Sanriku
First-rate brand of Sanriku

The fishing grounds of Minamisanriku in Miyagi prefecture is well known nationally. The Common Octupus caught here during winter is normally 60cm in length, and the small specimen weighs between 3 to 5kg. The firmness of the meat, sold under the brand name "Shizugawa Octopus", is a popular delicacy. On the other hand, the Giant Pacific Octopus is caught all year around and is much larger. With sizes reaching nearly 3m and weighing almost 20kg, its fresh taste makes it a commonly used sushi topping.
