Tips for Sustainable Sushi-Eating

At our Seattle Japanese restaurant, you’ll see that we take pride in the variety of our sea life ingredients. We do however realize that sustainable sushi is important for preserving fish life and the future of great sushi! Although you may not know it, some species of fish are dwindling due to overfishing. Many types of sea life used for sushi are abundant, but others are increasingly harder to come by. About half of the fish used for sushi are farmed, but if you want to be the champion of sustainability, here is a brief list of plentiful and/or farmed seafood:

  • Black Cod
  • Scallops, Mussels, and clams
  • Salmon
  • Tilapia
  • Oysters
  • Yellowfin Tuna
  • Dungeness and Stone crab
  • Atlantic, King, and Spanish Mackerel

For an extended list of sustainable sushi, just ask an I Love Sushi staff member at our Seattle Japanese restaurant. We’d be happy to point out our more eco-conscious options.
