Fresh Fish Lesson

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to
Japan have not held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese
population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever. The
farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If
the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh. The
Japanese did not like the taste.

solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their
boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers
allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese
could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not
like frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower price.


fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and
stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around,
the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive.
Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because
the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste. The
Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish.

how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get
fresh-tasting fish to Japan? If you were consulting the fish industry,
what would you recommend?

..let’s think…mmm….

How Japanese Fish Stay Fresh:

To keep the fish
tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the
tanks. But now they add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a
few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state. The fish
are challenged.


you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the
time tired & dull, so we need a Shark in our life to
keep us awake
and moving
? Basically in our lives Sharks are new challenges to keep us
active and taste better…..

The more
intelligent, persistent and competent you are, the more you enjoy a
challenge. If your challenges are the correct size, and if you are
steadily conquering those challenges, you are Conqueror. You think of
your challenges and get energized. You are excited to try new
solutions. You have fun. You are alive!
