The chapter opening case on the fishing industry focused on what ethical dilemma?

A. Fisheries are overcharging distributors for fish, which is being passed on to consumers. B. Fisheries and restaurants are substituting a less popular fish for a more popular one without the consumer’s knowledge. C. Restaurants are selling more fish than ever in spite of overfishing. D. Restaurants are selling fish that are legally banned in the U.S. E. The U.S. fishing industry is selling more fish overseas in spite of increased U.S. demand.

Answer:

B. Fisheries and restaurants are substituting a less popular fish fro a more popular one without the consumer’s knowledge.

Substituting an unknown or less popular fish for a more popular one is unethical and becoming more common. The regulations on fish labeling and naming, however, are flexible, so in many cases this is not illegal.
