Do the Japanese eat a lot of salmon?

Japanese people eat many different kinds of seafood.

You can find salmon on the menu at many sushi restaurants in Japan. However, in recent years I noticed a change. In 2004 and until 2016, the Japanese did not eat much salmon.

In 2017 when I was in Tokyo, I could immediately see that the Japanese had changed their view of the salmon. Some of the very popular fish such as tuna are endangered species.

Instead, the Japanese are very interested in salmon. Today, the Japanese eat a lot of salmon.

I know that Japanese fishmongers travel around Scandinavia to take look at salmon. The salmon from Scandinavia is known for its high quality.
