Of course it's dead. It's FRESH--but it's not alive. However--there is a type of SASHIMI--also raw seafood--which IS eaten while still alive. It can be fish or octopus or shrimp or lobster. Many people confuse sushi with sashimi.

Yes, its raw fish not oysters!

Almost always, but it can be very very fresh.

Probably but I did go to a teppanyaki bar once and the chef cooker lobster that seemed to still be alive .

Sushi is a type of food.
The ingredients that make it up are arguably dead.

If the sushi that you're eating has fish, then the sushi is dead

Pretty much all food is dead when you eat it.

Sushi is sour rice. It may have some sashimi, which is raw fish, served in it. The fish is caught, put on ice, it may take hours from then for the ship to come in and sell the fish. It's broken down and whatever parts the chef uses he then cuts up. A fillet that got cut off 9 hours ago seems pretty dead to me even though medicine doesn't really know what exactly "dead" means.
There are some traditions of dispatching meat at the table to show freshness. In a time when there was no refrigeration, what the fish thinks about it didn't matter compared to you not dying of food poisoning. Coming back to the medical definition, the closest thing we have is when the heart can't be revived. Bleeding out and then being chopped up and eaten I think falls neatly into that category
