Think your eating tuna, think again

A recent study has found 84% of white tuna sold is not actually tuna at all but escolar (wax fish), which can cause digestive issues in most people if portions larger than ~6ozs are consumed because of it's natural wax content. It is banned for this reason in Japan and a few other countries. Over all 33% of fish species labeling was found to be incorrect.

I've eaten Escolar.. and apparently the restaurant I had it at didn't know of its wonderful side effects. I found out later that night and into the next two days. Tasted delicious - probably the best fish I had ever eaten...
