You may not be getting what you paid for when it comes to buying fish.
That's according to the nonprofit group Oceana, which conducted one of the country's largest seafood fraud investigations. It found Americans are frequently served a different type of fish than what they pay for.
Between 2010 and 2012, the Oceana collected more than 1,200 seafood samples across the country. Testing found one-third of the samples were mislabeled.
According to the study, snapper and tuna were the two most mislabeled fish and the issue was most frequent at sushi restaurants.
