What The Fish

Originated in Japan, Surimi literally means “ground paste” – a paste made from fish meat. Manufacturing of Surimi had started in many areas of east Asia. Currently, 2–3 million tons of fish from around the world, amounting to 2–3 percent of the world fisheries’ supply, are used for the production of surimi and surimi-based products.
