Real News. Real Funny.
Bathia_Mapes: Uh, no, submitter. Salmon tastes very different from fish like cod or sole, both with have a mild flavor.
Friskya: All fish still tastes the sameFishy?
Oznog: Ever think this is a GOOD thing?Lemme point out- just about ALL the fisheries in the world are overfished. Say 2/3rds of the fish being sold are misrepesented, and actually the unlimited, unstressed, or farmed fish like tilapia.Well relabeling isn't going to put 3x more fish into the world! There ain't any more fish.The thing is, red snapper won't go extinct as long as the price is kept down by the fact that vendors can simply substitute tilapia for snapper. If you have a magic iPhone app to verify snapper DNA, suddenly the tilapia-substitution thing goes away, the price of genuine, verifiable red snapper skyrockets, and people get rich fishing red snapper to extinction, every fish taken making it more and more rare and increasing the price of the next one ever higher. Which is fark-all stupid knowing that people can't tell the difference if you DID give them tilapia and the only point here was to eat something rare out of a commodity fetish.
GentDirkly: It is not appropriate for the government to regulate this because public health is not at risk, and the environment is actually helped.
James F. Campbell: GentDirkly: It is not appropriate for the government to regulate this because public health is not at risk, and the environment is actually helped.Good news, everyone: it's okay to defraud your customers as long as you don't give them anything that harms their health.This is what conservatives actually believe.
doczoidberg: Fish is gross.And it all tastes the same.
GentDirkly: It is not appropriate for the government to regulate this because public health is not at risk, and the environment is actually helped.However, there is a mile-wide opening for commercial fishing interests to set up some sort of private organization with a logo people can trust saying exactly what fish it is. With a little publicity, restaurants with the logo on their menu should be able to charge more for their fish.
Friskya: It's almost like that time I ordered Chilean Sea Bass and was served Patagonian toothfish, instead.
FloydA: If all fish tastes the same to you, subby, then either you're going to crappy restaurants, or you can't cook, or both.
MacEnvy: Bathia_Mapes: Uh, no, submitter. Salmon tastes very different from fish like cod or sole, both with have a mild flavor.Actually it turns out all 3 of those were tilapia. Sorry,brah Obla di obla da life goes on, brah.
