    Re: The Tuna you are eating....may not be tuna...

    I'm curious how this would work with something like a tuna steak. Tuna has different properties than a lot of other fish, specifically more fat, which makes it unique in both appearance and taste. It seems like it would be hard to substitute another fish and call it tuna. Now, if they're talking about tuna in the can, then I guess I could see that.

    Hey now, this is a family friendly site.

    Oh wait, this thread is about the fish. Carry on.

    Maybe they're using horse meat like they did in Europe?

    Basically consumers that think they know a lot about fish, really don't.

    Oh fish, right.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Prevalent in the U.S. as well.

    Fish mislabeling common throughout US - Business - The Boston Globe

    It also calls for a ban on the sale of escolar, an oily species known as the “ex-lax” fish because of the gastrointestinal problems it can cause. Escolar is often misrepresented as white tuna at sushi restaurants.
