Oceana continues to reveal fraud in the marketplace. This time it is Peru's turn, where, on average, 67% of fish is traded under another name and substituted fraudulently; that is, approximately 7 out of 10 fish are sold under another name, according to the results of the new report carried out by the marine conservation organizations Oceana Peru and ProDelphinus.
The study analyzed 1025 samples collected in the main coastal cities of the country, identifying the replacement of species in 75 points of sale, among restaurants, supermarkets and district markets, in Lima (La Punta, La Victoria, Miraflores, San Borja and Surquillo), Chiclayo and Piura.
