'Boston Globe' Finds Mislabeled Fish In Restaurants

"A five-month investigation by the Boston Globe shows that restaurants in Massachusetts are routinely mislabeling fish, often substituting cheaper, lower-quality fish for what's promised on the menu. Melissa Block speaks to Boston Globe reporter Jenn Abelson about the story."

Also in Florida. "Last year, 186 restaurants in the state were cited by the Florida Department of Business"

Mislabeling of fish at restaurants may be widespread, studies suggest - Orlando Sentinel

And CHARLOTTE, NC "Fresher Than Fresh, a Gastonia-based seafood distributor, has been substituting Atlantic Salmon with Steelhead Trout"

PSI: Mislabeled fish sent to area grocery stores - WBTV 3 News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic for Charlotte, NC-

I heard the same thing, including names of restaurants, in Montréal, a few months ago. It was specific to sushi restaurants.

This happened in the UK some yrs ago in Wine Bars and Restaurants but I bet its still going on. Cheap Spanish Cava was being re labeled as premium champagne, I always ask to see the "cork" after any wine is opened as they cannot fake that.
