Another reason not to eat tuna... it's not tuna!

Studies show that stuff labeled "tuna" could be a lot of other fish, but not tuna.

My solution:  don't eat any tuna.  (Can't remember the last time I actually ATE any tuna, or at least something called tuna.)

More than half our tuna isn't really tuna

"The study compiled data from more than 1,200 seafood samples from 674 retailers in 21 states between 2010 to 2012. DNA testing showed that 33 percent of those samples were mislabeled or posing as fish that they were not. Samples claimed to be tuna and snapper had the highest fail rates, at 59 percent and 87 percent, respectively."

It's too bad we can't farm tuna, and feed them fishmeal made from Asian carp.
