Seafood Fraud and Mislabelling Across Canada

La Fraude Des Fruits De Mer et L'étiquetage Trompeur au Canada

National Results

To better understand the extent of seafood fraud in cities across the country, in 2017 and 2018 Oceana Canada staff collected 382 seafood samples from 177 retailers and restaurants in Halifax, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria. Of these, 44 per cent (168 samples) did not meet the labelling requirements set out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

Of the 177 food businesses we visited, 65 per cent sold mislabelled fish.
