Fish and seafood mislabeling is rampant in Canada, according to a report published earlier this year by Oceana Canada.

These suggestions are supposed to tackle mislabeling, illegal fishing, sustainability issues and unregulated fishing. Even restaurant owners and chefs have called Congress for action.
