Product Description

Have you ever eaten sushi? If so, the phenomenal growth in demand for sushi has come at a cost: overfishing has led to depleting fish stocks, which in turn has threatened the balance of the ocean's ecosystems. Is the current sushi trade sustainable? What can be done to ensure that the prized Blue Fin Tuna exists for future generations to come? This timely documentary winner of the Special Jury Prize at the 2011 Seattle International Film Festival and the Audience Award at the 2012 San Francisco Green Film Festival poses some important questions that all sushi lovers should give thought to before placing their next order of sushi.


Situated somewhere between JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI and THE COVE, Mark Hall's SUSHI: THE GLOBAL CATCH highlights both the artistry of sushi making and the shrinking population of one of its own ingredients: the bluefin tuna. --Michael Nordine, Village Voice

Sushi: The Global Catch offers an intriguing mix of history, process and state-of-the-fish reports, advocating a reversal of the world's assault on bluefin tuna fisheries and a short course on the alternatives. --John Anderson, Variety

Format: DVD
Ever since the release “The Cove,” I believe that there has been an increase of awareness about the mismanagement of our oceans resources, a response that is both commendable and remarkable. We need more of this type of work, so it is gratifying that Mark S. Hall made the very necessary and unforgettable “Sushi – The Global Catch,” under the umbrella of Alive Mind Cinema and Kino Lorber, among others.

The documentary begins at the end, so to speak. The filmmakers take us to several Sushi restaurants in Japan, where master sushi chefs, such as Mamaro Sugiyama (Sushiko restaurant, opened since 1885) and Yasuharo Ida (Sushi Iwa restaurant) are interviewed and tell us about the history of sushi and what makes a great sushi chef. In addition, there are interviews with Kazuo Nazaki, who has a knife shop in Tokyo, and who sells traditional knives for sushi shops. From there we are taken to the famous Tjukiji Market, in Tokyo, which is the largest fish market in the world. We are presented interviews with Makoto Nozue and Hiroyasu Itoh, two experts – or dealers --on tuna fisheries and pricing, who know how to evaluate the price of each specimen based on certain characteristics, such as the condition of the eyes. One tuna fish can reach the price of $400,000!! Itoh says that his company sold 109,565 tons of tuna in 2008. From then on, tuna – specifically Blue-fin tuna -- becomes the subject of the film, as this fish is the most exploited in the oceans, with a 60 to 80% reduction of its population worldwide.

After discussing the final destination and use of tuna in the sushi world, we are then introduced to some experts on tuna ecological preservation.

Was good for the first 25 minutes or so until we necessarily had to jump into the watered down - no pun intended - Polish/American/Texan/Chinese crap version of this amazing food...and then worse...right into brain dead environmental, sustainability nonsense...with no evidence whatsoever other than this silly circle of life "Lion King" deal courtesy of Greenpeace Activist Casson Trenor who looks like Simone Legno from Toki Doki with a crappier hat...what a waste of time...

Moreover, it doesn't end there but further evolves into a commercial for Casson's...guess what...YEP...Sushi restaurant...and guess where...YEP...San Francisco...where even Pigeons have rights.

Jiro has his own issues but I suggest watching that instead of this waste of time...

By the way, this momo believe that fish from a managed "farm" is not-sustainable but catching it live in the ocean is??? What idiocy...
