Is most sushi fish frozen?

On another CH board someone stated that almost all fish used for sushi has been previously frozen to ensure that all parasites are dead. In doing a bit of research on this, I'm finding lack of clarity re this subject, but have learned that tuna does not require freezing because itvis apparently resistant to parasites. Is it true that even at the finest sushi restaurants in the US (Urasawa, Nobu, etc.) that all the fish aside from perhaps tuna has been previously frozen?
