Movie Info

Sushi, a cuisine formerly found only in Japan, has grown exponentially in other nations, and an industry has been created to support it. In a rush to please a hungry public, the expensive delicacy has become common and affordable, appearing in restaurants, supermarkets and even fast food trailers. The traditions requiring 7 years of apprenticeship in Japan have given way to quick training and mass-manufactured solutions elsewhere. This hunger for sushi has led to the depletion of apex predators in the ocean, including bluefin tuna, to such a degree that it has the potential to upset the ecological balance of the world's oceans, leading to a collapse of all fish species. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Sushi: The Global Catch

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

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

It isn't all bad news in a doc suggesting sustainability and culinary pleasure aren't mutually exclusive.

Top Critic

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.

The Global Catch may be one-sided in its argument, but it's a persuasive one -- and the next time you eat sushi, you may think twice about ordering bluefin.

Just providing information, like a list of helpful websites and apps in the closing credits, isn't enough.

[Its] kaleidoscopic meticulousness proves comprehensive without ever feeling tedious, an especially impressive feat considering how quickly it becomes message-oriented.

Audience Reviews for Sushi: The Global Catch

2/24/14 Excellent story of the whole sushi story, particularly the need to be aware of sustainability of fish populations, especially the blue fin tuna. I will always be more aware of the fish I order in sushi restaurants.
