Fish Fraud

Recommended Posts

Been looking into "Fish Fraud" recently as I do enjoy seafood quite a bit and there is a good read here:

https://oceana.ca/en/blog/canada-has-seafood-fraud-problem

And there are lots of other related articles easily found online as it is a worldwide epidemic. What shocked me is what types of fish get passed off for higher quality meats, especially served raw in sushi. If you didn't already know all fish used for sushi has to be completely frozen for a certain period of time at a certain temperature to be served to kill parasites, etc. but it won't save you in all cases - Things like Escolar (a fish banned in some countries because its "complicated" to eat safely) being passed off as Tuna.

What got me looking into this was this Tweet thread that I'll archive here..

Pretty eye opening stuff though it'll never stop me from eating seafood because I enjoy it too much. But maybe I'll put more effort into catching my own or paying up for better sourced stuff.
