National Public Radio (NRP) published an article on 10/28/2015, “That Salmon On The Menu Might Be a Fraud – Especially In Winter“.  This article discusses a study that was performed December 2013 – March 2014 that concluded “Results showed that 43 percent of salmon samples tested were mislabeled, and that far more of that mislabeling is occurring in restaurants than in large supermarkets.”

The NPR article referenced UW Tacoma’s Sciences and Mathematics faculty Dr. Erica Cline’s 2012 published work “Marketplace substitution of Atlantic salmon for Pacific salmon in Washington State detected by DNA barcoding“.
