About the Movie
From Texas to Seattle and New York to Moscow, the demand for sushi, a cuisine formerly found only in Japan, has grown exponentially and a multi-million dollar industry has been created to support it. In a rush to please a hungry public, the expensive delicacy has become common and affordable, appearing in restaurants, supermarkets and even fast food trailers. The traditions requiring 7 years of apprenticeship in Japan have given way to quick training and mass-manufactured solutions elsewhere. This hunger for sushi has come at a price and has the potential to upset the ecological balance of the world's oceans, leading to a collapse of all fish species. Edited by Sandra Adair, ACE and Catie Cacci with an Original Score composed by Brian Satterwhite. A FilmBuff Presentation.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film's arguments about sustainability are convincing and hard to shake. And, the movie suggests, you - the sushi eater - can help: Crave it and enjoy it, but eat sushi responsibly.
Fresh: It isn't all bad news in a doc suggesting sustainability and culinary pleasure aren't mutually exclusive.
Fresh: [Its] kaleidoscopic meticulousness proves comprehensive without ever feeling tedious, an especially impressive feat considering how quickly it becomes message-oriented.
Rotten: Just providing information, like a list of helpful websites and apps in the closing credits, isn't enough.
We don't need fish and animals to thrive
let the meat and fish go... we don't need it...
Worth a watch...
Awesome. Sushi lovers (or even non-sushi lovers) will enjoy watching this film.
Balanced documentary, visually stunning, grand soundtrack
Mark Hall has put together an outstanding documentary. Whether you're a sushi lover or not, this film is absolutely one to watch. He provides a very balanced and thoughtful look at a complex and controversial topic. It does just what a documentary should do: Allow the viewer to consider all arguments; pose questions themselves; and, ultimately form their own opinion. It's visually fantastic. And, Brian Satterwhite's soundtrack stands on it own but compliments the film so well, too!
