This is a really bad initiative for Japanese citizens. It's financialization and globalisation of a National fishery. Very similar to Australian paying through the nose for electricity despite being an LNG powerhouse, or New Zealanders starving despite being a fishery powerhouse, or Argentina not able to buy its own beef.

Governments have a joystick-level of control over this, and an 'off' button if they choose to use it.
