Japan Pavilion to Exhibit at the 2013 International Boston Seafood Show
International Boston Seafood Show 2013 Booth 2333
BOSTON -- February 25, 2013
The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan (MAFF) will be
setting up its highly-acclaimed Japan Pavilion at the upcoming International
Boston Seafood Show 2013 (IBSS), North America’s largest seafood trade event,
to be held from March 10-12, 2013 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition
The Japan Pavilion will showcase the latest seafood products from eight
different exhibitors from across Japan. To meet the needs of even the most
discerning consumer, the pavilion will feature a stronger focus on seafood
ingredients that have been selected for their consistency with industry
trends, including sustainability and healthy eating, as well as for their
flavor. Exhibited items this year include yellowtail, which has gained
considerable recognition and market presence in the US in recent years, as
well as sliced dried bonito and dashi soup stock—essential ingredients that
bring out the umami in Japanese cuisine and have begun to appear in the
recipes of some of the world’s top chefs. Highlighting the healthiness and
versatility of Japanese seafood, hijiki seaweed and wakame salad will also be
on display, along with such popular items as sashimi-grade Hokkaido scallops,
squid and oysters. These and other seafood items will provide visitors to the
Japan Pavilion with an opportunity to taste the best that Japan has to offer.
Throughout the show, product demonstrations and tastings will be held for
select products, including a simple, do-it-yourself microwave recipe for
yellowtail teriyaki. Tastings will also be held for a wakame salad renowned
for its health properties and deep-fried oysters that are generous in size and
rich in flavor. Through these events, the MAFF hopes to deepen buyers’
awareness about the quality of Japanese seafood while further stimulating
