Chujado Island has fast current and deep, clean waters. This
is where warm current meets cold current, and the precious yellow
croaker lays eggs here.
Chujado’s yellow croaker is caught by Yujamang, the one and
only yellow croaker catcher in Korea, in the open seas near Jejudo
The fast tides and bedrock underwater of the seas make it ideal
to grow meaty and tasty yellow croaker.
Yellow croaker is a traditional food rich in protein that has
been very popular across Korea. Korean ancestors considered
dried yellow croaker a valuable kind of fish. As it contributes
to digestion and supplies nutrition, <Donguibogam> called
it “Jogi:” the fish that energizes you.
