Mislabeled Fish

Do you try to eat more fish to be healthy? Do you also try to buy sustainable fish so you're not contributing to over-fishing? Do you have an allergy to some types of fish? It turns out there's a lot of fraud in the seafood market, and if you do have an allergy you had better be really careful.

Consumer Reports says a significant portion of the fish we can buy in markets today is mislabeled or not fully labeled. I won't go into too many details, but this is pretty sad in a nation like the United States where we have government safeguards for this kind of stuff.
