The Fishy Business Of Labeling Seafood  
FishIt's investigative journalism at it's core. A reporter smells something fishy going on and goes digging for answers. In an exhaustive new investigation by the Boston Globe, that something fishy, was - well - the fish. For five months, Globe reporters looked into the all-too-common practice of mislabeling fish by Bay State restaurants, grocery stores, and seafood markets. What they found was that Massachusetts consumers are routinely - and unwittingly - overpaying for less desirable and sometimes undesirable, species - or buying seafood that is simply not what it is advertised to be. In many cases, the fish was caught thousands of miles away and frozen, not hauled in by local fishermen, as the menu – or label – claimed. Sometimes the errors were innocent mistakes. But often the switch was deliberate, driven by profits. With us to discuss the fishy business of mislabeling seafood - and why it matters - is Boston Globe business reporter Jenn Abelson.
