Every time you enter a sushi restaurant, simple ask: “Do You Serve Sustainable Seafood?”

Sustainable sushi is made from farmed or fished sources that can be maintained for future generations without jeopardising ecosystems. Unsustainable sushi can lead to concerns for the environment, economy and health.
