DNA sequencing from fish tissue from sushi restaurant. Some substitutions not too bad, but the last case... yikes.

Watch out for the catfish sushi...

 

I got to chatting with my new mailman who is a country boy who loves his fishing. We landed on the subject of good places in the area to get walleye and catfish, and he told me places are selling an Asian shark called "swai"  in the place of catfish because it is cheaper. It is commonly known that when you order walleye you're usually not getting walleye, but it was the first I heard of fraudulent catfish. I looked it up and found it to be true, at least in other areas. https://www.thetownt...fish/337838002/

Walmart here sells frozen swai.

 

I bought a package of frozen cod fillets, that has the texture of frozen giant African land snail fillets.

I just realized, channelling Dave Barry, that The Fraudulent Catfish would be a good band name.

normally they are fed food containing beta-carotine (the substance that makes carrots orange). But colouring after slaughtering them has probably been done by food fakers.
