Wild Caught Fish - Sushi Restaurants
Does anyone know if most of the fish served at sushi places like Sushi Sake or Teppo, is wild caught or farm raised? Wasn't sure if there was a all or nothing rule, or if I would just have to ask per fish. Thoughts?
I would pose this as a question for someone like Teresa Gubbins (Culture Map Dallas), Scott Reitz (Dallas Observer) or Nancy Nichols (D Magazine). I would like to know as well.
I would say all of the eel is farm raised. There is a show on Nature on PBS that stated much of the eel is caught in tributaries in the NE of the US and shipped to China where they farm raise most of it. Very few fisherman in Japan still catch eel in the wild.
