Rainbow trout can now be called salmon in China

If you think there’s something fishy about the salmon you’re eating, that could be because it’s not salmon.

New rules introduced in China mean rainbow trout can now be labelled and sold domestically as salmon.

Why? Because a media report earlier this year caused a splash by revealing that rainbow trout had for years been labelled as the similar-looking fish.

Authorities decided that instead of banning the practice, the best solution would be to legitimise it.
