    Default Fish fraud: What’s on the menu often isn’t what’s on your plate

    If you splurge on the sea bass or snapper, you may not always be getting what you pay for, even at the fanciest restaurants and upscale fish markets.
    There’s something, well, fishy going on with certain favorite fish dishes, according to a new study from the conservation group Oceana.

    In January 2019, the president of Casey's Seafood Company in Newport News, Virginia was sentenced to 4 years in "federal" prison for mis-labeling seafood. He was sentenced under a federal law, known as the Lacey Act, which forbids this very practice. Granted, Mr. Casey was a "blatant and repeat offender of fraud on the consumer." So, those who sell mislabeled seafood should be aware that they could end up in federal prison.

    "So, those who sell mislabeled seafood should be aware that they could end up in federal prison."

    And allow me to refresh our memories in the recent HH thread about Starkist's fish fraud price fixing within the big 3 U.S. tuna companies. https://www.hawkeshealth.net/communi...highlight=tuna POST #23
