WATCH: Stop-Motion Video Shows Fish Turning Themselves into Sashimi

It would be really convenient if fish just jumped out of the ocean onto our cutting boards and, without any prompting, fell into perfectly-portioned cuts of sashimi: tuna would filet its own flesh, uni would hop out of the sea urchin into the bowl, and geoduck would peel that weird, wrinkly condom-like thing off its phallic self. In this video from Uni’s Tony Messina ,this fantasy plays itself out — or, if you’re a sushi chef, becomes your biggest nightmare.
