Abstract: On Tuesday, the White House asked federal agencies to crack down harder on both "seafood fraud" and illegally-caught fish imported into the United States. A surprising amount of seafood may be mislabeled or caught illegally overseas This didn't get nearly as much attention as Obama's proposal for a vastly expanded marine reserve in the Pacific, but it's worth a closer look. The move came after a couple of recent studies finding that a surprising amount of seafood sold in the US may be either mislabeled or imported illegally from abroad. The first problem can mislead consumers.
