Look out, seafood fans, something fishy is going on

  • 59%of “tuna” consumed in the United States isn’t actually tuna, and the skullduggery doesn’t stop there. Mislabeling of fish in the United States is, according to over 1,000 genetic tests run by ocean protection non-profit Oceana, utterly pervasive, with 18% of fish sold in grocery stores erroneously labelled. The most common place to find mislabeled fish, however? Sushi restaurants, where a staggering 74% of fish is not what you ordered. source
