How has the demand for tuna changed over time?
Tuna has been a popular food in Japan for centuries. Today, millions of pounds of it are sold every day in Tokyo’s
wholesale seafood market. In North America, sushi was a largely unheard during the early 20th century, but
during late 20th century it became a trendy food in American cities, as well as in Europe and Latin America.
Consuming sushi became a sign of class status, education, and taste, and so the demand for tuna grew and the
price per pound became very high.
Describe the locations, technologies, and workers involved in producing tuna for sushi restaurants.
