Sharks In Life

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. It’s essential to good Sushi. 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 very far in the sea. Greater the distance they traveled for fishing, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh. The Japanese did not like the taste of Sushi.

To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats.
They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go very far and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish. So, frozen fish fetched low prices and problem remained.

To go one step further, 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?

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 fresh because they have been challenged.

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired & dull. We stop questioning our abilities and purpose of our life. We end up like a bad taste Sushi. 

 If we want to taste good then we need Sharks in life.Challenges in our life are like Sharks. They keep us fresh, active and lively.
