When is a Red Snapper, really a Red Snapper?

Feb 10, 2017 3:29:04 PM | Is that really red snapper?

Red Snapper is considered the poster child of fraud foods. According to Eater Magazine: Rockefeller University's Dr. Mark Stoeckle is involved in DNA species testing for the Barcode of Life project. Dr. Stoeckle said, "Just don’t ever order red snapper. The poster child for fraud, the real thing is served up less than six percent of the time.” Essentially, if you have ordered Red Snapper 20 times there is a pretty fair chance you have actually had the fish once . . . or maybe not at all.

Who can we trust in selecting our seafood?

Aug 2, 2016 4:37:00 PM | A question posed by Mike Spindler

Trust. It’s a funny thing. Consumers have tried to place their trust in many different authorities - from retailers, to food companies, to government “pyramids”, to medical agencies. They then find out that natural is not organic, cage-free is not pasture-raised, grass-fed may not be grass-finished and that their white tuna sushi is most often stomach wrenching escolar and Red Lobster’s lobster bisque…contains no lobster. More folks are concerned with their health, their kids’ health, their parents’ health and so are self-determining and directing the products and the food selections they are going to pursue.
