Sushi Gets Sustainable
Fresh, cool fish, subtly seasoned rice and the tingle of wasabi—sushi is the essence of the ocean in one bite.
The sushi that we eat today has its origins in fish preservation techniques that are hundreds of years old. Then, fish filled our oceans. Today, there are serious concerns about the number of fish left in the sea and it’s time to create new traditions.
The Seafood Watch Sushi Guide helps you order seafood that’s sustainably caught or farmed. It introduces you to new flavors that will tantalize your taste buds. Sustainable sushi—it satisfies the senses.
Bluefin tuna is one of the most popular fish on the menu at most sushi bars, but are we loving bluefin to death?
