Like most industries—especially those involved in today’s food culture—seafood falls victim to many myths. Some are based in fact, while others seem to be pulled out of thin air. Poorly conducted studies, popular blogs sharing false information and even conversations among friends can all lead to a misunderstanding of what is and isn’t true. We’ve looked more closely at six common seafood myths so that you can have some peace of mind when eating your favorite fish.
