Mackerel (saba) and horse mackerel (aji) caught in the rough currents of the Bungo Channel are meaty and have incredible flavor, earning each recognition as a distinct brand known as Seki Saba and Seki Aji, respectively. These fish are usually served as sashimi in order to maximize the freshness and flavor that only the fatty parts of the fish can bring out. As delicious top-quality fish, Seki Saba and Seki Aji command higher prices then their counterparts from other fisheries of Japan, but both are must-try gourmet items of Oita for sashimi lovers.
