Can you name that fish – Is it swordfish or mako shark?
There are many ways you can be cheated when you buy seafood:
- There might be less actual seafood in the package (think overbreaded shrimp.)
- Your seafood could be packaged in large amounts of ice to increase its weight (sometimes up to 40% is ice.)
- It might have traveled a creative journey through various countries, disguising its origins (and 84% of U.S. fish is imported.)
