Boston Globe investigating study - mislabeling of fish at Mass. restaurants.

My favorite - O Ya - Served sablefish as "wild black cod" - their reported explanation: Ordered black cod from supplier, thought it was acceptable name. Can't be both explanations...

Blue Ginger got dinged on the sablefish too, but gave a more honest answer - did not like the name sablefish and called it butterfish, which was thought to be an acceptable name, which it is according to wiki.

H-Mart was the only supermarket I noticed that got dinged. A few Chinatown places seemed to engage in outright fraud - catfish labeled as flounder, etc.

The sampling seemed tilted toward the low and high ends - would be really curious how many mid-range places are saying "phew" today...
