Sue Stock just sent me this great link to a Miami Herald story about a genetics professor who proves that snapper you ordered is actually cheaper catfish or tilapia.

Faux Snapper?

This is a really despicable practice. When we first opened blu seafood and bar two years ago, a company tried to sell us something that was not yellowtail snapper, but our Chef caught it immediately. Of course, we stopped dealing with them immediately and the company has since gone out of business. Seafood restaurants, as well as all restaurants, rely on both a good trust-based relationship with their suppliers as well as the keen and talented eye of chefs that can spot any faulty or dishonest deliveries.
