“sustainable sushi bar”

Since 1994, Mashiko has given me a way to share my thoughts on food and culture. I am proud to say that as of August 15, 2009, Mashiko is Seattle's first fully sustainable sushi bar.  How do we define what is sustainable when it comes to seafood?  Some key factors to consider are traceability, fish populations, fishing methods, and farming practices. Traceability refers to the ability to find out where your seafood came from. This includes knowing specifically where, as well as how, it was caught. Some fish populations are in steep decline. We must allow these species time to repopulate so that we can enjoy them responsibly for generations to come. The most sustainable fishing methods do not cause damage to the oceans or allow for much bycatch (unintended creatures caught during fishing). Responsible farming practices include providing quality feed, being antibiotic-free, and taking great care not to disturb the surrounding environment. We have solid relationships with several top seafood sustainability experts. We appreciate the support we have received from both customers and industry insiders. Our education has been intense, and it will be ongoing.  -- Hajime
