Even within one species there is a big difference such as tuna.
The size of the fish will be different. In addition, the structure and the fibers of the fish meat is also different. That will have a direct impact on how you slice the fillet.
You can always tell if a fish for nigiri is cut the right way if the fish slice is silky and almost melts in your mouth.
