With a bit of transgenic jiggery-pokery it's possible to make animal tissue glow in the dark (see link). I'd guess that this fluorescentness is destroyed by cooking so the logical use for this is a sushi restaurant lit only by the soft glow of hundreds of small rectangles of fish, some on diners' plates, and some on the conveyer belt, snaking its way through the restaurant.

       //Flourescent things don't necessarily glow in the dark// - am I thinking of something else? luminescence, maybe?

       It'd make finding Nemo a lot easier.

       would blacklight in the restaurant cause the white rice to glow?   

       If so, you don't even need fluorescent fish.

       No - I think UV lights only make white clothes glow because the washing powder you use to wash your clothes has 'whiteners' in which fluoresce under UV light.
