The sushi you’re eating might not be what you think.  according to a recent study by Oceana, an organization known for ocean conservation  they found mass amounts of seafood products mislabeled as lower quality fish.  Between 2010 and 2012 Oceana tested 1,200 seafood samples from 674 retail sotres across 21 states.  They found that one third of the samples were mislabeled   Of the 120 red snapper fish sampled only seven were actually red snapper.  Oceana says their findings demonstrate that a comprehensive and transparent traceability system must be established at the national level.
