Sustainable Sushi

...is largely a hopeless prospect in this country (let alone the rising appetite for it world-wide, especially in China) for the foreseeable future, but: the Monterey Bay Aquarium's sustainable sushi guide is a win.

A translation to both Japanese language and Japanese market availability would be a plus...

FWIW, a sushi bar here is actually a reasonable place to take a non-squeamish vegan. At a good place, there are a number of pure vegetable rolls. Not clear how much goodwill you earn with the sushi chef that way, but it's a much better menu bet than a tonkatsu (deep-fried pork) restaurant.

I can't promise perfection, but I can promise to do my best to follow the guide.

Now, how to popularize the ideas here?

With Tataki Sushi and Sake Bar in San Francisco (www.tatakisushibar.com), we've opened the world's first truly sustainable sushi bar. A number of our Japanese patrons have expressed confusion at what we are attempting, but more have encouraged us to try to expand to Japan. What do you think? Do you think it's feasible, given the audience and the tastes?
