With overfishing and increased mercury levels, it seems like no fish is safe fish these days. For these reasons, I barely indulge myself in my favorite of all ocean-borne culinary delights: the sushi bar.

They're all listed under The Seafood WATCH's sushi guide's "Best Choices" column--meaning that the fish are a bit more abundant than their threatened counterparts and caught or farmed in eco-friendlier ways.
