The longline fishing method of tuna (fishing method in which fishing hooks with attached baits are hung in the sea) began more than 250 years ago in the mid-18th century in the Edo period, off the coast of Boso, Chiba prefecture. It is still inherited as a traditional Japanese fishing method.
Usufuku Honten Co., Ltd. was founded as a fish wholesaler in 1905. Full-scale participation in the fishing industry from the third generation. Although he was engaged in inshore vessels, deep-sea bonito vessels, and northbound vessels, he switched to a single deep-sea tuna fishing vessel from the fourth generation.
Owned by Usufuku Honten Co., Ltd., the seven Shofuku Maru are headed by the industry's top class boats, and follow tuna on a long voyage spanning one to one and a half years.
With the overfishing of tuna becoming an international issue, Japan has legalized and strictly adhered to the specified quotas. We will continue to use our limited marine resources to the next generation while coexisting with the sea. Usufuku Honten Co., Ltd. is engaged in activities to protect marine resources in various ways.
