An Oceania study published in 2012 found that 33% of 1,215 samples of fish were mislabelled.
There have been numerous other examples of food fraud involving fish. Some people get caught, but many likely do not. Businesses spend many years and thousands of dollars building a reputable brand, and it can so easily be stolen.
