That May Not Be the Fish You Thought

Restaurants and stores may be knowingly mislabeling seafood and Massachusetts wants to stop it.


From the Boston Globe

The bill, proposed by the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure, is expected to be filed Friday.

Businesses misrepresenting seafood could be fined $800 and have their licenses to operate suspended or revoked.

According to the story, Pacific cod has been sold as the more expensive Atlantic cod, tilapia as red snapper, and escolar as tuna. The bill would ban the sale of escolar.
