Story of Aomori Scallops

In Japan, many people think of "Hokkaido" when they hear the word "scallops" (it's probably the same for people from overseas).
One reason for this is because Hokkaido has the largest catch of scallops in the whole country followed by Aomori.
However, we have a strong confidence to state that "the largest amount of catch" is not equal with "the best flavor"!.
Instead, we know that Mutsu Bay scallops are the best and here are the reasons why.

Reasons why Aomori Scallops are the Best

(1) Scallops in Aomori grow in Mutsu Bay, which is surrounded by mountains in all directions.
The bay is also a destination for more than 200 rivers running through the region.
Because of the minerals delivered to the bay via the rivers, there is an abundance of plankton in the bay.
Feeding on these nutritious plankton, Aomori scallops grow big and savory.
Compared to scallops from Hokkaido, Aomori scallops are tastier with a softer texture and higher glycogen amount.
In addition, gentle wave motions in Mutsu Bay create the best nurturing surrounding for scallops as well.

(2) Unlike Aomori scallops, scallops from Hokkaido often come with roes.
This is because scallops from two areas are caught in different seasons.
In Hokkaido, scallops are caught during winter when roes grow big.
As a result, the size of roes is often almost the same with adductor muscles, which otherwise is supposed to be the tastiest part of a whole scallop.
On the contrary, catch of scallops in Mutsu Bay in Aomori starts in spring when roes finish emitting eggs thus packing more glycogen (also known as umami) in abductor muscles.

*Glycogen exists in muscles and pancreas.
They are sometimes referred to as animal nature starch polysaccharide.

(3) Some of scallops from Mutsu Bay are called "baby scallops".
It refers to scallops that are smaller than 1 year old.
Though they are small in size, they are still tasty.
What is more, for being small, they are softer, easier to eat and cheaper than bigger scallops!
