Preparing sushi almost always involves tuna fish, which is one of the key ingredients to a good sushi experience. The only time I didn’t see any tuna in my local sushi restaurant was on March 10, 2011. I recall asking my sushi chef, “where is the Maguro” and he shrugged and explained that there were no decent size fish available.
I was amazed by this, so our asked my assistant to call him and get more information. I wanted to know, had this ever happened and the answer was, he had never experienced this in his career. I was dumb-founded until the next day in the afternoon a 9.03 magnitude earthquake hit Tohoku. This suddenly made sense.
