Wikipedia definition
2. Katsuobushi, also known as okaka is the Japanese name for dried, fermented, and smoked skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis, sometimes referred to as bonito). Shaved Katsuobushi and dried kelp - kombu - are the main ingredients of dashi, a broth that forms the basis of many soups and sauces (e.g. , soba no tsukejiru) in Japanese cuisine. Katsuobushi's distinct umami flavor comes from its high inosinic acid content.
