Seafood items, especially fish, are an integral part of most Japanese dishes, and the Japanese normally prefer fresh vibrant fish, not sluggish ones.
When Japanese companies started fishing with large boats that went far from the shore, caught fish and took it back to the dock, they found that the fish lost their vibrancy and many were dead. They decided to freeze fish as soon as they were caught, then take it back to the shore and unfreeze it, but still the fish didn’t taste fresh enough.
They thought about how to solve the issue and found a simple but wonderful solution which was that in the fish tank where they stored the catch they left a small shark in the tank. Of course, the shark would eat some of the fish but when the fish tank arrived at the shore, all of the remaining fish were very fresh.
It is likely a reflection of our life, when we have an easy comfortable life we get lethargic and sluggish but when situations pop up in our life, like threatening sharks, our level of alertness goes up and we pay additional attention which brings back the liveliness and vibrancy in our lives.
So, if you are in a very safe tank, jump into a shark tank and play with the shark, I am sure life after meeting sharks would be wonderful. Today let’s be thankful for those sharks that made our lives vibrant and full of awareness and alertness.
