Sushi actually means vinegared rice and does not need to contain raw fish at all. It is a rice dish which may include vegetables, cooked fish, raw fish, poultry, or other proteins.

Sushi originated in Southeast Asia in the 4th century B.C. as a method for preserving fish. The fermentation of the rice prevented the fish from spoiling.

If white wine goes with fish, do white grapes go with sushi?

25 years ago large Atlantic bluefin tuna (250 to over 1,000 pounds) might sell for a penny a pound for catfood, if it sold at all.  Today, that same bluefin tuna can sell for well over $100 per pound, mainly due to the popularity of sushi and sashimi around the world.

In 2001 a 440 pound bluefin sold for $173,600 in the Japanese Tsukiji fish market - that’s about $394 per pound!
