Ocean Friendly Sushi Guide - Please Share With Your Friends

Our friends at the Blue Ocean Institute recently released a Guide to Ocean Friendly Sushi (http://www.blueocean.org/sushi), in order to provide sushi lovers the ability to satisfy both their culinary cravings and their desire to protect the ocean.

You can download the guide here (http://www.blueocean.org/files/Sushi_Guide_WEB4.pdf), or better yet - save the following short code (30644) into your mobile phone and send a text message with the word FISH and the type of fish you are about to eat and get a response seconds later with the sustainability and threat level. I use this service religiously and I highly recommend it to anyone who cares about the ocean and enjoys seafood.

As long as we're posting links to sushi guides, here's another that I'm aware of that hasn't been mentioned yet: the Monterey Bay Aquarium Sushi Guide.

Here are two links: the first goes to their web page, and the second downloads their pdf. They also have great seafood selection guides (tailored to your region of the US) if you poke around on their web site a bit.

Enjoy! (But not too much... I prefer our ocean-dwelling friends stay in the sea!)
