Report Suggests Seafood Fraud Widespread in Canada

Category: Uncategorized

The results of a study conducted over 2017-2018 by the conservation group Oceana Canada suggests that seafood fraud and mislabelling is widespread in Canada. The organization tested seafood from 177 retailers and restaurants in 5 Canadian cities (Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax) and found that of the nearly 400 samples tested, 44 percent were mislabelled. The group is calling on the Canadian government to address the issue by implementing ‘boat to plate’ traceability requirements.
