Japan plays catch-up in inland fish farming

Maruha Nichiro and Nissui to aim to begin commercial shipments this year

Nissui has begun shipping inland cultured whiteleg shrimp on a trial basis.

TOKYO -- Japan's seafood processors are beginning to shift their business focus from catching fish from the sea to inland fish farming as new technologies and legal revisions make this kind of aquaculture more appealing.

Companies such as Maruha Nichiro and Nippon Suisan Kaisha, or Nissui, soon expect to begin commercial shipments of inland farmed fish, including salmon, and a general trading company is following suit.
