Sorry, that unagi sushi you’ve been craving just got the red light. How about awabi or hotate instead?
New color-coded sustainable-sushi guides released last month by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Blue Ocean Institute, and Environmental Defense Fund help you find sushi that’s healthy and ocean-friendly.
Conveniently, these consumer-oriented guides also come to your mobile phone, perfect for when you’re sitting at the sushi bar, deciding what to order. The Monterey Bay Aquarium guide divides sushi into simple lists of “best choices,” “good alternatives,” and “avoid.”
