If you’re studying katakana, try reading the words from this label that I’ve transcribed just below the photo. Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool if you need help with that or with the kanji above or in the text below.
The katakana will give you the name of the fish and its origin. The character 生 is also seen and discussed here, in a post I recently wrote about beer.
This reminds me, I’d better polish this off before the 消費期限 sneaks up on me, the 21st is just around the corner!
