Kampachi: The Jewel of the Sea

Sourced from pristine ocean waters of Panama where this fish is sustainably farmed, kampachi boasts a delicate balance of sweetness and umami, making it an ideal choice for sushi enthusiasts seeking a premium dining experience. And it's a responsible seafood choice that protects our planet and our oceans, too.
