How to Be a Passive-Aggressive Sushi Diner

Clearly, we're all for sustainablity here. In fact, just a few days back in this very blog, Jessica covered the new sustainable sushi movement, lead in part by the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program. Time Out New York is in on it too.

But sometimes a political movement can go too far.

Sustainable Sushi

Hate to break it you, but your healthy sushi dinner? Not so healthy after all. At least, not so healthy for the fish—our voracious raw fish appetite is rapidly depleting the ocean of some of its most prized specimens.

This isn’t necessarily new news, but now we can’t say we didn’t know any better. On October 22, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch will be releasing its latest pocket guide, the aptly titled “Seafood Watch Sushi Pocket Guide,” which will tell us what species we can eat occasionally, which ones we should never eat and those we ought to try to convince restaurants (sushi and otherwise) to never serve again. You can order it here (it’s free).
