Fish story


The Japanese have always loved fresh fish but the water close to Japan has not held much fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever.

The further the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring the fish. If the return trip took more time, the fish was not fresh.

To solve this problem, fish companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer.

However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen fish and they did not like the taste of frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower price. So, fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin.

After a little thrashing around, they were tired, dull, and lost their fresh-fish taste. The fishing industry faced an impending crisis!

But today, they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan.

How did they manage…?

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks but with a small shark. The fish are challenged and hence are constantly on the move. The challenge they face keeps them alive and fresh!

Have you realized that some of us are also living in a pond but most of the time tired and dull….?

Basically, in our lives, sharks are new challenges to keep us active.

If you are steadily conquering challenges, you are happy. Your challenges keep you energized. Don’t create Success and revel in it in a state of inertia. You have the resources, skills, and abilities to make a difference. Put a shark in your tank this year and see how far you can really.

Happy New Year

  1. Slightly different than fishkind, we ought to have revolutionary ideas, which never rots and keeps mankind fresh with new culture, song, music, dance, painting, sciences and discoveries, products! But all this is possible in a Socialist society only, as in any other society, people either work for profit or for survival!


    • sorry sir i don’t agree with your comment about socialist society. because there are people in other societies too who don’t care of profit or survival to do some work. here shark doesn’t stand for profit or survival issue but it stands for new challenges you need to search and work on to make your life worth living…
