FishFraud

Okay, so the graphic isn’t entirely fair (comparing the entire state of Pennsylvania to the city of Atlanta or the South Florida region is a little weird), but the underlying point of this Washington Post story on fish fraud is still valid: A lot of the time, when you think you’re buying a nice piece of tuna or snapper, you’re actually buying Peruvian bottom-feeding suckfish. Or something. And this is more likely to happen in Pennsylvania than anywhere else(ish).
