It's almost like that time I ordered Chilean Sea Bass and was served Patagonian toothfish, instead.

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.

I love that some of the menus listed "SCROD" as the fish of the day.

I didn't know that verb even had a past perfect tense!

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.

That Guy...From That Show!: FloydA: Seacop:

Seaman's Catch Received On Deck, meaning "whatever whitefish is flopping around" is usually what's meant.

It's amusing when people go on about how much they love scrod over other varieties of fish.

My "scrod is the past tense of a verb" comment was intended as a joke.

"The menu said whitefish, but when I saw the bill, I realized I had got scrod."

Eh it's Mass.

Lived on Cape Cod for 4 years and all they did was batter and fry the shiat out of it until it was an oily clump. Could have been fried dough.
