After media fallout stemming from a public fracas last month — during which Guido Rahr, the president of the Wild Salmon Center, was banned from the Pearl's Sinju Restaurant for pointing out endangered fish was on the menu — the sushi spot has acquiesced. The Oregonian's Grant Butler reports that Sinju has removed the endangered Atlantic bluefin tuna from the menu, and the reason for Rahr's banning was less about his politics and more about his approach. Said the owner: "Wildlife conservation is an important issue, but so is the respect of the human beings that work in that establishment." [OregonLive]
