Thanks are due above all to my dear sister Anja who put up patiently with my long lasting monologues concerning Sushi. She searched this document before publication for syntactic and semantic errors. Furthermore my dear colleague Kristina substantially contributed to the creation of this document by her always lasting hunger for Sushi.

Sushi and Sashimi are meals prepared with raw fish. Since fish can be infested by parasites of most different kinds (and some of these parasites are not harmless to humans also), it is necessary that you take greatest pains over the selection of the ingredients.

Further there are cases known where the consumption of Sushi leaded to addiction :-)
