Why is local fish not used for sushi?

FiskIt’s really good questions that I sometimes get on my sushi courses.

In Denmark we have a lot of fish of very high quality suitable for sushi. It is especially whitefish found in Danish waters.

In Denmark most people are familiar with salmon, tuna and tiger prawns. Seafood is to find on any menu regardless of where in the world you are.

In different parts of the world have local seafood which can be advantageously to use for sushi. In Japan you can find sea urchin which is a fine and delicate shellfish.

Why there are no more local fish that has found its way to the menu is a good question. The consumers do also have the courage to eat sushi prepared with local fish.
