Take a closer look at that red snapper gazing up at you from your dinner plate-it might not be red snapper at all. A new study conducted by Oceana, a nonprofit ocean-protection organization, found that fish eaters are often deceived about their order, particularly at sushi bars.
Over 120 samples of fish labeled red snapper actually included 28 different species-17 of which were not even part of the snapper family. While grocery stores proved the most reliable places to purchase a fish, the study found that sushi bars, specifically those in Southern California, are the least. At least 52 percent of the samples tested there turned out to be something other than what they were labeled. Go fish.
