    I’m sure you’ve heard that croc tastes like chicken, x tastes like chicken, etc. Well, tilapia tastes like everything. :-|

    I sometimes pick up frozen fish with the ambiguous " fish from …" instead of its bloody name. Never mind mislabelling, here they sometimes don’t bother with a label at all.

    The fine retailers of fish in Boston decided the name ‘whatever’ was not descriptive of the catch, so they call it ‘scrod’.

    A couple of years ago, a woman went to aan expensive local restaurant and ordered grouper.When the meal arrived, she said it didn’t taste like grouper.The waiter assured her “It is definitely grouper, it says so on the box.”She said “Box? My fish shouldn’t come from a box.”I think it came from Thailand.This launched DNA fish testing all around here.Most often mislabeled are snapper and grouper.Most correctly labeled is salmon.

    For years “scallops” were actually shark, cut with a “cookie cutter”, then regulations made them stop false labeling. As more fish species, and even sharks, disappear from the world’s oceans, and “fresh” water too highly contaminated, or warmed, to promote many life forms, we may see that new “fish” on the market, formed and shaped algae.

    To me, it’s prey. I don’t eat every kind of meat – just what is ethically correct.
