Quality sushi is fresh sushi, and you will never find fish any fresher than in your cooler after a day on the water. I first started serving dockside sushi to clients while working as a mate on a New Jersey charter boat, and the raw meals got rave reviews. Preparation is easy and with a little practice, you'll be slicing fish like a top sushi chef in no time. Tuna may be a favorite, but many other species including flounder, striped bass, tautog and salmon can all be eaten as sushi. Just remember, it's illegal to fillet some gamefish at sea, so regulations may mandate that you prepare the catch back at the dock.
