Chuck Bowen
Slant Magazine

The doc is ultimately a dry endeavor that feels closer in spirit to an Afterschool Special than a full-blooded movie.

Unlike the recent Jiro Dreams of Sushi, it doesn't inspire conflicting feelings of guilt and hunger -- it's nearly devoid of fish fetishism.

The film's arguments about sustainability are convincing and hard to shake. And, the movie suggests, you - the sushi eater - can help: Crave it and enjoy it, but eat sushi responsibly.

Film Journal International

Engaging, informative and mercifully non-frantic documentary about the exploding global appetite for sushi and how such popularity threatens coveted blue fin tuna and the ocean's ecosystem.
