LIFE, FOOD & MOLECULES

Water, Life And Food

All life, as we know it, is based on the premise that water present.  Hence, when one looks for signs of life beyond the Earth, one first tries to detect the presence of water or traces of it.

If we exclude water, the greatest part of our food and drink is of organic origin and is derived from plants and animals, which themselves are more than half made up of water while in living form.  Water is, therefore, the most important single substance for life and its sustenance.  Organic material from plants and animals is classified into four different categories:  proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids.  The first three categories supply the most vital molecular components in our food, also sushi.
Cells And Molecules

All living organisms are composed of cells.  Some of them are unicellular, for example, bacteria and yeast.  Others are multi-cellular, containing from a few hundred to billions of cells.  A human being is made up of about 100,000 billion cells.

All cells are built up from small organic molecules, which all contain carbon.  These small molecules can be subdivided into four  classes:  monosaccharides, amino acids, fatty acids, and nucleotides.  They can create a larger molecules, the so-called macromolecules, or macromolecular assemblies.

Macromolecules, in turn, are also divided into four categories: carbohydrates (polysaccharides), proteins, fats, and nucleic acids.
Fish And Shellfish

The oceans of the world are filled with a vast abundance of fish and shell fish which are very suitable for preparation of sushi.  Some can be eaten raw, while others must first be cooked, marinated, or fermented.  There is a wealth of colours - white fish, red fish, shiny fish - and a variety of patterns and textures.  As a bonus, fish and shellfish are healthy foodstuffs, low in calories, and rich in proteins and superunsatureted fats.

The genus fish encompasses a large group of vertebrates which live in water and respire through grills.  It includes bony fish, cartilaginous fish, and round mouthed fish.  Only bony fish, of which there are more than 25,000 different living species, are used for making sushi.  Depending on the fish, the muscles (fillets), skin, and/or roe may be used as raw ingredients.

Shell fish is generic term for invertebrates with external shells.  The genus includes crustaceans and molluscs with a shell, such as bivalves and gastropods.

Molluscs comprise a large phylum of invertebrates which includes at least 100,000 living species.  Most have external shells, like clams, oysters, and escorgot, or are cepholopods, such as squids and octopuses, which have either a reduced internal or external shell, or no shell at all.

Crustaceans constitute a very extensive class of invertebrates with about 54,000 different living species.  Their heads are usually fused with their bodies, as is the case for shrimp, and many have clearly segmented bodies, river shrimp being a good example.  Crustaceans (Crustacea) form a very large group of arthropods, usually treated as a subphylum, which includes such familiar animals as crabs, lobsters, crayfish, shrimp, krill and barnacles.
