That fish you're buying probably isn't what it says it is2/21/2013
Researchers from nonprofit ocean protection group Oceana have determined that roughly one-third of fish sold in the U.S. is mislabeled. Building on a smaller study from last year, Oceana tested 1,215 samples from 12 parts of the country and found rampant deception: In the 120 samples labeled red snapper, for example, 28 different species of fish were found, including 17 that aren't even in the snapper family. Sushi joints were most likely to deceive consumers; grocery stores were most likely to be honest. This sleight of hand might seem harmless, but it's not always: Nearly two-thirds of "wild" salmon samples were found to be farmed Atlantic salmon, which is less healthy and worse for the environment. Yikes. [Source]
