Where can I get sustainably sourced sushi in LA?

I love sushi so much, but I'm really concerned about fish that is not caught or farmed sustainably. Does anyone have any suggestions for a restaurant that serves sustainable sushi?

Thanks!

    Best way to do this is to know what's sustainable and what's not, then order those items you're OK with at whatever sushi restaurant you choose. Here are some websites to help in your selection:

      Agreed, I don't know of any places that really only do "sustainable" stuff, but if you know the fish that are sustainable and go to a serious place, you can ask about the fish and stick to the local sustainable ones.

      Define sustainable?
