Consumer Reports on wild salmon [Moved from Home Cooking]

I'm not sure if this belongs here or on the Food Media board, but the current Consumer Reports has an article titled "The salmon scam". They tested salmon labelled as wild and found that in off-season months about half of the "wild" salmon turned out to be farmed.

During summer (May - September) over 90% of the wild salmon is correctly labelled. At other times you're about 50% likely to get farmed regardless of how it's labelled.
