Shark meat sold in Aussie fish and chips

New research shows shark mystery meat is used in the popular fish and chips.

Conservationists say fish sold at the local fish and chips shop could actually contain a mix of unknown shark species.

Researchers say, flake, which is the primary ingredient in fish and chips, is gummy shark and needs to be labelled as such.

Macquarie University conservation biologist Dr Adam Stow tells Luke Grant the fish is often mislabelled.

“A lot of people are unaware when they buy their fish and chips down at the local shop, what they are in fact eating is shark.

“Work that’s been done overseas has found very similar patterns which is pointing to a rather urgent need to get the labelling right.”
