We’ve been taught that every small thing we do can cause a major impact on the environment. We know about carpooling, picking up someone else’s trash, and now, we should reconsider sushi consumption.
Yes, what you eat matters, and Harney Sushi is one of the newest restaurants in the country to jump on board with an all-sustainable seafood menu. Located in Old Town and Oceanside, Harney Sushi has publicly committed to cleansing their menu of harmful ingredients that put our ocean in danger. Instead, they’re making seafood that matters, benefiting both the ecosystem and our health.
The fishes that we’ve long been accustomed to tasting at top sushi spots—Toro, Bluefin Tuna, Big Eye Tuna, certain Yellowfin, Unagi, Red Snapper, Hamachi, Maine Sea Urchin, and Octopus—are now extinct from Harney’s menus. These environmentally-harmful ingredients are what the restaurant industry is identifying as short-in-supply fish, slowly depleting resources and destroying the ocean. Long story short, Harney is doing their part to reduce their negative impact on our big blue sea. For customers who care about the planet enough to change the way they eat, they’re in for a fishy solution.
Veering away from the traditional options can make an audacious difference for our future. The new sustainable, traceable seafood includes such replacements as Farm Raised Black Cod from British Columbia, Kona Blue Kampachi raised by Kona Blue Water Farms, Atlantic Striped Sea Bass, Mt. Cook Alpine Salmon eco-sustainably farmed and raised in near perfect growing conditions, and locally grown and sourced produce. These alternative options make for a menu that promotes a more “natural” way of consumption.
