Mislabeling damages consumer trust in seafood

argylesock says… Products shouldn’t be mislabelled. Ever. But let’s not get carried away. Somebody has found fake labels on 7% of cod (Gadus morhua) sold in British and Irish retailers and restaurant suppliers. I’ll still buy cod and eat cod. But please, cod suppliers, get your act together about the labels.

seafoodsource.com reports:

The deliberate mislabelling of seafood has the potential to damage an industry valued for its quality and sustainability.

Recent press coverage of this issue in the U.K. has raised concerns that weakly enforced supply-chain safety rules and rogue suppliers could have a negative effect on consumer trust, something that would have a direct impact on restaurant sales.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
