The Japs and fish

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, thefish were not 


The Japanese did not like the taste. 
To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their 


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 

The frozen fish brought a lower price. So 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. 

So 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? 

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. 

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most 

of the time tired and 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. "
