Description

Sushi just may be the best food in the world. But not all sushi is so great for the world. Some sushi comes from threatened fish species, while other fish used to make sushi may be caught or farmed in ways that are harmful to the environment.

So what's an eco-minded sushi-lover to do? Use the Green Sushi Selector, which makes it easy to find out which sushi you're considering ordering is green, and which isn't. The Green Sushi Selector:

• Lists all sushi fish by their Japanese names and their common market names for easy browsing.

• Profiles all of the most common fish used to make sushi, details which varieties (e.g. Pacific vs. Atlantic, wild-caught vs. farmed) of each fish are the most "green."

• Highlights health alerts that may be in place for any type of fish because of elevated levels of mercury or PCBs, and offers dietary recommendations for how often you should eat each type of fish.

• Provides a quick-reference "cheat sheet" so you can check the eco-friendliness of a given type of sushi at a glance.

Well Worthwhile Within its Limits

:
The only major problem with this handy and straightforward tool has nothing to do with the app. For many types of seafood eaten as sushi, the question of whether they are "eco-friendly" or not depends on exactly what species you're eating, where it came from and how it was caught or farmed. This could lead to either educational or awkward encounters with the staff of sushi restaurants and some of them may not even have answers. In some cases unless you're sitting in a really high-end joint, the answer may be logical - if an option is cheaper and more local then that's probably what is being served.

The app includes almost all common seafood selections and it straightforward to use.

Just as means of educating yourself and your friends it's a worthwhile tool.

5/5 stars

Very nice

:
Nothing like it in the app store. Would like more fish to be covered, especially fish found in American restaurants, like rainbow trout, etc. Mercury content calculator too.
