Overfishing and Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a documentary about Jiro Ono, a sushi maestro who owns a three star Michelin restaurant in Tokyo. While largely this film explores Jiro's work philosophy, which is superb and inspiring, there were a few scenes that largely affected me.

It's the concrete proof that overfishing does exist, and species are disappearing from our plates, and while us consumers might not realize it, people who worked in the field of seafood - namely Jiro and his son - does.

I wish people would acknowledge this and take this into account when they eat. I hope with watching Jiro Dreams of Sushi people would start appreciate what they eat more - quality foods - rather than blindly eating anything that tastes good enough.
