Sushi restaurants that serve sustainable fish?

robsvt | Mar 13, 2010 02:35 PM

Most seafood is healthy on so many levels.

Hear is a list to go by that you can put in your pocket and reference at restaurants:

Certain seafood is safer to eat than others because of the ecological and health rish. It's generally safer to eat smaller fish and wild fish. However, some wild fish are contaminated with PCB's, mercury, etc. or even overfished.

To make matters even worse and more confusing they have exposed restaurants that state they serve wild fish, which they even charged more for, when further investigation revealed this wasn't the case.

That being said, I am looking for that gem sushi restuarant that serves wild alaskan sushi! Farmed raised is not ecologically (contaminates wild populations and the feed is wasteful) or human healthy (lacking in healthy Oemeg 3 oils) and often has food coloring (cancerous) added to it. Atlantic salmon is overfished and often contaminated. Pacific is okay, but may be overfished. I am willing to pay more fo this, but haven't been able to find it.

Here's the sushi reference card

I'm thinking if anywhere would have it would be N. Park, but have yet to confirm it. Thought, ideas, suggestions, would be great!
