How Seafood Fraud Tricks Consumers Into Buying Lower Quality Salmon


... Oceana, a nonprofit seafood conservation group, did a study back in 2015 and found that 43 percent of the salmon they tested was actually mislabeled.
Most of that salmon fraud ― we’re talking 69 percent of it ― mislabeled farmed salmon as being wild-caught salmon, which is typically more revered, that means you could be paying for a wild-caught Pacific salmon filet, when in fact you’re getting Atlantic farmed salmon.
