“Holy mackerel! What kind of fish is this?” should be ringing through consumers thoughts. Oceana, an international ocean advocacy group, has created a report on national seafood fraud. This report shows that one-third of seafood is mislabeled, meaning that consumers may not be getting what they think they’re getting.
The study is eye-opening to say the least. Imagine ordering red snapper and getting salmon? Nonetheless, meat substitution of any other species would be forbidden. Remember the horse meat fiasco?
After reading this report, consumers will be pickier about where they purchase their seafood.
