The sushi you’reÂ eating might not be what you think. Â according to a recent study by Oceana, an organization known for oceanÂ conservationÂ they found mass amounts of seafood products mislabeled as lowerÂ qualityÂ fish. Â Between 2010 and 2012 Oceana tested 1,200 seafood samples from 674 retail sotres across 21 states. Â They found that one third of the samples wereÂ mislabeledÂ Â Of the 120 red snapper fish sampled only seven were actually red snapper. Â Oceana says their findings demonstrate that aÂ comprehensiveÂ and transparentÂ traceabilityÂ system must beÂ establishedÂ at the national level.
