Chef Sasaki asserts, “I think that sea bream can be called the ‘King of Fish’ because is so symbolic of Japan.” Because the fish is red, which is a color associated with felicitous occasions, and the word play of ‘tai’, meaning sea bream, and ‘meditai’, meaning happy or auspicious, the sea bream has extremely profound yet familiar associations for Japanese people. It is truly the king of fish. Furthermore, because Ebisu is always shown catching a sea bream on his fishing rod, it is a symbol of good luck and happiness.
