The Cloverfield universe refers to various fiction revolving around the J.J Abrams-produced Cloverfield, which includes the 2008 film itself and the manga prequel Cloverfield/Kishin. The film was the subject of a notably heavy viral marketing campaign; in fact, Cloverfield was first publicized with a two-minute teaser trailer that did not advertise the film's title, only its release date: "01·18·08." Elements of the viral marketing campaign included MySpace pages created for fictional characters, unusually intense secrecy over the film's plot, and websites created for fictional companies alluded to in the film.

Yellowtail

In the Tagruato corporate news story 'Smilers! at the Fish Market!,' it is stated that Dock Captain Tanaka Jokichi placed some Yellowtail in a tank filled with the Slusho! flavor, Banana Anime by the Slusho! Smilers. After being placed in the tank, the Yellowtail began to jump, which Jokichi claimed they had never done before.

Yellowtail is a name applied to any of a number of different species of fish. In the context of traditional Japanese sushi, however, Yellowtail usually refers to the Japanese Amberjack, Seriola quinqueradiata. Given that the news story takes place in a Japanese fish market, this species is the one most likely being referred to. Japanese Amberjack are native to the waters of the northwest Pacific, from Hawaii to Japan. They grow to a maximum weight of 40 kilograms and a maximum length of 150 centimeters. They are a popular food-fish in Japan and, while some of them are indeed caught in the wild, a large percentage are grown in farms.
