How safe is sushi from a decent sushi restaurant?

gms256 | Jan 15, 2008 04:34 PM

Hi -

Whenever I go to a sushi restaurant I see people eating every type of food on the menu and eating tons of it (rolls and sushimi).

I want to know, just how safe is it to consume raw fish? Should I be afraid every time I eat tuna/salmon/yellow tail/striped bass/uni etc etc etc that I am going to get ill from bacteria or become a host from a parasite?

I love sushi, but I just wanted to know if any of you fellow chowhounders had any input as to just how safe it is to eat chunks of raw fish, regardless if it is a very high end place, or just a very good, "very fresh" neighborhood joint.

THANK YOU!!!
