TradexFoods shows us how frozen seafood processors can hide poorly trimmed and cut fish and seafood through deceptive packaging. By folding over the thin attached belly and tail portions, pressing together holes that have been cut into the fillets, and stacking broken pieces, the solid frozen piece looks pretty good when it is frozen and glazed.

However, that same portion when thawed and trimmed from all the unusable sections, is much smaller than stated package weight. From the video, the package weight shows 16.45 ounces at the beginning, and 11.05 ounces after trimming all the unusable parts.

Unfortunately, the consumer can’t tell the good and bad apart when the fish is sold frozen.
