Fish Detective Busts Restaurant Switcharoos

The NPR Health Blog’s Scott Hensley has an interesting short piece concerning economic adulteration. Restaurants sometimes substitute cheaper fish for more expensive species, like grouper and red snapper. You can read the blog post here. Particularly interesting are the precocious New York high school students who used genetic testing to detect adulteration in the Big Apple’s restaurants and markets. Half the restaurants and six of ten grocery stores had mislabeled fish.
