Oh-So-Sustainable Sushi


Fresh and tasty sushi is pretty easy to find these days. Fresh, tasty, and sustainable sushi, however, is not. At least it wasn't until now. A new pocket-sized book, Sustainable Sushi: A Guide to Saving the Oceans One Bite at a Time, is a guide to dozens of sushi types that you'd find at a restaurant, plus details about where and how the fish are caught, what contaminants they may contain, and whether they're a sustainable option.

Casson Trenor, the book's author, would probably hope that you take his guide over to San Francisco's new all-sustainable sushi restaurant, Tataki Sushi and Sake Bar, where he is the restaurant's official "sustainability guru." If Trenor's book is too thick take along, consider printing the new sustainable sushi pocket guide from the folks who practically invented the sustainable seafood movement, the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Program.
