Kate Salesin Develops Sustainable Sushi Guide App

Kate is an alumna of C-268 and C-226D and developed the idea for the guide during her SEA Semester experience in Europe.  A major academic component of the program was examining the historical development of fisheries in four historic seaports in Ireland, France, Portugal and Spain.

"One of the main themes of the class was overfishing, so I decided to put my computer science skills to use by making an app for the final project called Sustainable Sushi Guide."
The app helps users interpret sushi menus, lists the fish used in each dish and if they are sustainably harvested.  Her first goal is to market the app to organizations and businesses promoting the use of sustainable fisheries. From the app's website:
Sustainable Sushi Guide is your seafood and sushi dining companion. You might recognize maguro or hamachi on a menu, but what about tako, iwashi, or shirako? What are they? Are they served raw or cooked? Are they sustainably harvested? Sustainable Sushi Guide is here to rescue you.

  • Search over 60 types of seafood by Japanese or English names
  • Read sustainability information distilled from many seafood guides
  • View photos of typical preparations
  • Translate over 50 other terms you might see on a sushi menu (e.g. nigiri, chirashi, omakase)
  • Learn about sustainable fishing and farming methods
  • Rate sushi you’ve tried for future reference

Kate's Sustainable Sushi Guide (ad-free and does not require an internet connection to work) is available on itunes. Spread the word!
