Mislabeling an issue for species not covered under SIMP, US study by Oceana finds

March 7, 2019 - from Oceana and SeafoodSource:

"Oceana launched a new investigation to study whether seafood fraud persists in the U.S. seafood market. Between March and August 2018, Oceana collected more than 400 samples of seafood not covered in the Seafood Import Monitoring Program from 24 different states and the District of Columbia. One in every 5 of the fish tested were mislabeled. Seafood fraud continues to cheat consumers, weaken ocean conservation efforts, and undermine honest fishermen and seafood businesses."
