The complex and almost invisible path traveled by seafood on the way to our plates creates a regular opportunity for consumers to be overcharged for their fish.

Know your fish, what it should look and taste like. That seems simple but it's not.

Given the sheer availability of fish in most grocery stores...and what that means to fish stocks being severely would seem the price isn't high enough. We are over-harvesting.

Not only should you pay a reasonable price, but your seafood should be fresh. There is no excuse for shops to sell slimy, cloudy eyed fish, or sticky, smelly shell fish. Likewise, restaurants should be held to a high standard of handling and safety, since we cannot look at the seafood prior to cooking. Pricing has gotten out of control. When you have creamy rice, something that costs pennies to make, selling for $20 because you call it risotto, who is to blame, the customer stupid enough to pay it, or the restaurant that can get away with charging it? As long as we frequent these locations and pay their unreasonable prices, they will have no incentive to change and begin charging a reasonable price.

A fascinating reminder that one can't always believe what one reads. (a.k.a., something's fishy)
