Sushi Maki's new menu showcases sustainable seafood. The restaurant is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, which means its fish is sourced from fisheries that promote responsible harvesting habits.

"It was an extremely enduring and difficult process, but to go in this direction of total sustainability was mandatory for us to get MSC certification," owner Abe Ng says.
