Sustainable Seafood [moved from San Diego board]

Josh always reminds people of the negative effects of eating commodity beef/meats. I know a lot of people love all kinds of sushi but especially some fish species populations are strongly declining. It's not so much a question around Kaito specifically but more about sushi places and its customers in general how much they care about for example the well regarded Monterey Seafood Watch list. Bluefin is one of the best and most written about examples - wild caught and farmed/ranched bluefin tuna is on the avoid list (many countries were strongly pushing for a ban last year but it failed for political reasons) but many sushi bars still serve it. It's a problem similar (or even more pressing) than commodity meat and how much ethical issue should play a role in food choices
