Misaki Maguro Suisan

"Be global. Be Local. We are committed to passing on to the next generation a lifestyle of healthy eating with good fish."

Located on the tip of the Miura peninsula, in southwest Kanagawa Prefecture, Misaki Fishing Port is well known as a platform where frozen Maguro (tuna), caught by deep-sea fishing vessels, is traded alongside live and fresh fish caught by coastal vessels. It is a well-positioned natural harbor as Jogashima, an island facing it to the south, forms a natural breakwater.

Deep-sea fishing vessels depart for the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans from Misaki, and come back to the port a few months later after fishing. Over one hundred Maguro wholesalers, including large and small ones, support Misaki's fishing industry and have built a system that enables us to deliver high-quality Maguro to consumers throughout Japan.

"Super-frozen Maguro" has been rapidly frozen to the ultra-low temperature of -60℃ immediately after being caught in order to maintain the fresh, high quality, and is stored in a super freezer warehouse to keep freshness.

In the Misaki market, a lot of professional brokers are enrolled; high quality Maguro is selected by bidding through an auction system; cutting is done according to need by advanced processing technology. In recent years, brokers go abroad to purchase Maguro, there are also demands for farmed Maguro which is tastefully appealing to people in many countries around the world. Theyhave defined it as "Misaki MAGURO". In addition, in the spring of 2018, a new market called "Misaki Wholesale Seafood Market, Miura City" was established. The market has thoroughly advanced hygiene management. Its purpose is to help build up the "Misaki Maguro" brand.

"Their Policy and Challenge"

Quality check Conversation of fishing resources

We purchase only Maguro (tuna) that are allocated in the catch quota and are well managed. We do not deal with Maguro“less than 10kg of bluefin tuna” and ones caught by“round haul vessels”. We consider this is one of the reasons decreasing fisheries resources.

Quality check Sustainable food cycle

We use the waste from the Maguro to make organic fertilizer, and pass it on to local farmers for their crops. Our desire is to use the entire fish and not waste the gift from the ocean.


Energy resources

We try to offset even the enormous energy consumption required for a super freezer warehouse. We set up a solar power generation system on the top of the office after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.Sifted to supply of renewable energy of the second processing plant and super freezer warehouse in 2020.

We set our goal to achieve RE100 as corporate responsibilities.


We offer lectures on food education for elementary school students who come to the warehouse for field trips. We also employ a local younger generation, and overseas trainees as well, and provide human resources for them.
