Since 1950, over 90% of large predators, such as tuna, have been overfished. Available stocks of bluefin tuna have declined by 80% since the 19th century. According to a WWF study, if nothing is done, bluefin tuna stocks could collapse in 2012. As of January 1, 2010, Sushi Taxi banned bluefin tuna from its restaurants. The chain wants to raise public awareness about overfishing, pirate fishing and the depletion of our oceans.

Sushi Taxi employees donned their Panda costumes to raise awareness of Québec City residents about the overfishing of bluefin tuna. The chain endorsed the cause by simply removing bluefin tuna from its menu. During this campaign, the pandas sent a clear message to Québec City distributors, consumers and other restaurateurs — Be Eco-Gourmets!
