Q: How much sushi should I order?
A: A general guideline is that one pound of sushi grade fish will feed 2-3 people. When deciding how much sushi fish to purchase, please keep in mind whether the order will be used for sushi, sashimi, or rolls, as rice is very filling.

A: Yes, if you plan on ordering more than $600 worth of product, please call us at (424)253-4688 and we will be happy to discuss options for your purchase.
Q: How long does sushi grade fish last in the freezer?
A: Frozen sushi grade fish will last in the freezer for up to one month for optimal quality. While we have had reports of customers keeping our products in their freezer for longer, we can't guarantee that the product will still be good.
Q: How do you defrost sushi products?
A: For optimal quality, we recommend defrosting our products in the refrigerator for 24 hours. If the product is need immediately, they can be placed in an ice water bath for 3 hours.
Q: What does sushi grade or sashimi grade mean and are your products safe to eat raw?
A: Sushi grade and sashimi grade are terms that have no official meaning. That is to say that the FDA has not set any guidelines as to what "sushi grade" or "sashimi grade" seafood means. The industry uses the terms to denote seafood that is of the highest quality and freshness, and has been properly taken care of when caught (placed on ice immediately and bled properly) so that it is safe to consume raw. Our seafood is then frozen on the boat and is ensured to be safe for raw consumption. PLEASE NOT: Raw seafood is not recommended to be consumed by pregnant woman or those with compromised immune systems:
Q: How long will your products last once defrosted?
A: We recommend that our products be used within two days of defrosting, if properly stored in the refrigerator.
Q: Is fresh sushi better than frozen? Why do you only offer frozen sushi/sashimi products?
A: Generally, fresh sushi fish denotes a product that has been previously frozen and defrosted. If you are at a sushi restaurant and the product is being sold as "fresh", there is a good chance that this is not the case. Some sushi stores will sell previously frozen sushi products, but this only serves to reduce the shelf life of the product, something that we try to prevent.
Additionally, if we will never sell completely fresh (never-frozen) sushi products as this poses a huge health risk. Please, don't risk eating never-frozen products, as these products are not up to FDA standards, which require products be frozen at -20C for 7 days before they be eaten raw.
