“Fish Fraud” Common Problem in US

Next time you order fish, look at your plate carefully, as you could be the victim of a bait-and-switch scam. The Sun Sentinel says “fish fraud” is more common than you think. According to a new study, fish sold in the US as red snapper, wild salmon and Atlantic cod is falsely labeled 25 to 70 percent of the time. Be wary of lower-than-normal fish prices—it could be a sign that you’re buying something that’s been falsely labeled. Buying whole fish is another way to ensure you get what you are paying for.
