Jennifer Kaplan, who teaches about food systems during a Culinary Institute of America, says that fish rascal is a large problem: “Substitution, where fish are intentionally mislabeled, impacts 1/3 of fish sole globally.”
Another report, cited by National Geographic, found that 20% of fish are intentionally mislabeled. As for what kinds of fish are some-more expected to be mislabeled, your red snapper is some-more times than not only tilapia, according to a investigate conducted by Oceana.
Grocery stores, restaurants, and sushi venues are all culprits.
“The reason for this form of transformation is economic. Less costly, some-more abounding fish can simply be replaced for some-more expensive, reduction accessible fish and are probably untraceable,” Kaplan said.
