More than 230,000 MT/yr of eels is produced worldwide, with the main producers being China, Japan and Taiwan. Over 40% of this production is produced for the Japanese ?Kabayaki? market. Kabayaki is a style of serving eels, where eels of around 150-200g are butterflied, placed on skewers, basted in a thick soy based sauce, and steamed or grilled. More than 90% of eels consumed in Japan are served this way, with eel being the most widely consumed freshwater fish in Japan.
