The Taiyo Micronesia Corporation is a purse seine fishing company formed in 2012 as a joint venture between Maruha Nichiro Group company Taiyo A&F Co., Ltd. (TAFCO) and the Federated States of Micronesia. Five vessels were transferred from TAFCO to Micronesia and now fish for skipjack tuna in the central and western Pacific. At the corporation’s new factory, completed in February 2018, part of the catch is processed into katsuobushi (dried and fermented skipjack tuna) and residues from this process are used to make livestock feed.
