Watch for Fish Stories

April 17, 1986|Associated Press

NEW YORK — What's in a name?

Enough, it's said, for some fish dealers here to be misnaming species to make them more alluring to buyers. An example would be pollack being sold as blue snapper and mullet sold under the name of fresh bass.

A fish market officer here says it is best to "shop for freshness and not for the name of the fish."
