Having a sushi-making party? Blue Ocean Institute, the folks who bring you one of the most useful and frequently updated wallet seafood guides, now has a pocket guide to ocean-friendly sushi that you can carry in your wallet and peek at while you decide on your sushi order or stand confused in front of your fish monger.
Of course, you can still get an instant answer via text message by texting FISH and the species name to 30644. Cell phone and PDA users can visit www.fishphone.org to download a cell phone-friendly seafood guide.
As of this writing, the fish to stay away from are Atlantic Bluefin Tuna (Kuro Maguro/Hon Maguro), Farmed Salmon (Sake), farmed Salmon roe (Ikura), Shrimp, imported farmed and wild caught (Ebi), Japanese farmed Yellowtail (Hamachi), Red Snapper (Tai), and Freshwater Eel (Unagi).
