Many sushi restaurants -- and great sushi chefs -- serve delicious dishes that do not involve the destruction of ocean ecosystems, overfishing of species whose numbers may not recover in our lifetimes, or depend on fish-farming practices that deplete ocean resources.
The reviewer clearly knows there are better choices available, using the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood watch iPhone or Android app. Had he made those better choices, and communicated to the chef his preference for ocean-friendly seafood, he'd have steered steer clear of "morally dubious territory" -- and would help ensure that his sushi feast wasn't a last supper (like the meals dished out in "The Freshman") but instead a contributor to a future with abundant, healthy oceans.
