You can find 7,200 sushi restaurants on Yelp in NYC, but it’s hard to make a sustainable decision when it comes to eating sushi. Even people who love eating sushi rarely know about the available substitute options. The current system in restaurants is not providing transparent information nor direction on what kinds of sustainable options people can choose when they are ordering. Fishwish curates the existing menu based on the Seafood Watch standard recommendation to sushi consumers when they are selecting sushis from the menu. By making the eco-eating process easy and convenient, sushi consumers can make sustainable decisions without the hassle of making secondary efforts to check the information about their choice of sushi.
