One-third of sea­food mis­labeled, study finds

  1. Only a third? It’s that bad with cuts of meat here in Vancouver.

    I would expect it to be more like 50% mislabeled.

  2. I wouldn’t be sur­prised at higher than a third. I see a lot of frozen fish products are just labelled as ‘non-specific fish’ tho would that be accept­able if they star­ted doing that with meat now?
